Could not close cabinet file

Hi All
When i will try to build MSI file from WSI it throws error "Could not close cabinet file".
Details are:
I want to create MSI containing 4Gb of files.When I include all these files in WSi it takes time to save . when we start compling of the same file after couple of hours it throws error could not close cabinet file and stop working.

I had tried by adding files directly to the msi..but no luck..not able to save the MSI ..
please suggest me the way..how to add these large size files in wsi and build the MSI..

can just verify in wsi that whether cab outside option is enabled.
If not through release wizard it can be done using custom option and then try compiling it.

There is an inherent limit of 4Gb for any Windows file. You need to split the files into separate, external CABs. If you try to use internal CABs, the MSI itself might exceed the limit and you're back to square one.
