I have built a simple screen saver which has the following forms:
Main form - with image control and timer
Configuration form - with drive, Directory, and File list box controls
Help form - with image and rich text box control
The problem is the size of the distribution setup package. Ok I can save 200KB (zipped) by just removing the rich text control.
I notice that the setup includes for distribution a library file called 'Msvbvm60.dll' which is 1.4MB alone. Is this file required for every VB6 application?
Also 'Oleaut32.dll' and 'Olepro32.dll' take up 760KB. The only references in the project are to the following:
'Visual Basic For Applications',
'Visual Basic runtime objects and procedures', and
'Visual Basic objects and procedures'.
Is there any way of reducing the size of the distributable CAB file?
