Hello all

I am capturing a very huge installation. It ends up with more than 2 gigs and Wise captures everything in a single feature with shortcuts outside.

When compiling, since it is greater than 2 gigs it fails. Is there an easy way to tell Wise to create multiple cabs even if there is a single feature or I absolutely need to stripe my installation in multiple features and set the cabs to 1 per feature setting?

I am currently working in an app-v / msi windows 7 environment where the apps we are packaging are large ie 2GB to 5GB

I have recently packaged an app that is 2.69 GB with over 128,000 files and over 26,000 folders ( this was captured with wise 8.0)

you can use 2 options on the media page
1) you can compress your files external
2) or you can create external cab files with the option one cab per feature

NB - to use option 2 you might need to break the feature down and create new features and then move components around

You can change it in there depending on what you need to get under the 2gb.
