Why is my recompiled exe sooo huge?
Posted on 2006-07-03
Hi my dear friends!
When using the same source files and recompiling a project I noticed my exe had become huge....I dont know with which version the orignal project was compiled or whether the exe was compressed. (will do so later on cause even with aspacking my new exe it still is twice as hugeas teh original supplied by the project)
The original exe being 87.583 kB of size.
Now when using the same source files adding 5 lines of code and recompiling it, my exe becomes 409.600 kB of size and even after Aspacking it it still is 170 kB of size....abacadabra how can this be?
ps it is not too big an issue...but I just wonder what causes this.
