Reduce footprint for installer including SQL Server 2005 Express
Posted on 2008-11-03
When I add the installationfiles for SQL Server 2005 Express SP2 to my installer, the size of the setup-file is much, much bigger.
Only my app: 13 Mb
Including SQL Server: 276 Mb
So is there a way to reduce the footprint of installer even with SQL Server 2005 Express SP2?
PS: The installation of SQL Server is done unattended with parameters from within the installer. So that must still be possible.
