I have a program that is 52K in size... when I use Microsoft's Application Setup Wizard, which came with VB5, the install files before they are zipped come out to be a total of 3.5 MB.  Is there a way to reduce this size?  I'm only using 2 OCX files in my application.

The answer is NO.
All files that are added by the setup wizard are necessary for the application to be correctly installed on the user's machine.
There might be some files that will already exist on one user machine but not on another. Hence, you can not determine which files do exist on which machine. Therefore, you must include all the files added by the wizard.
Also, using only 2 OCX's does not mean that only the OCX files are added. There might be some dependecy files that are reuired by the OCX's.

Regards.
