VB6: Why is Setup.exe so slow?
Posted on 1998-10-12
I have an application that installs 115 files. The cab file generated by the Package Deployment wizard is around 50 megabytes. When I run setup, it is slower than dirt! Each file being installed takes over a minute or so on my P200 with 80MB of RAM.
Why is this? Much smaller test programs that I have generated seem to go much faster. Is there a good reason or solution for this?
Is there an InstallShield program that works well with VB6 that anyone recommends?
