Switched D5 from W2K computer to XPPro.

5 of 6 projects compiled to the exact same exe size.

6th one compiled to 1280KB when it was 1307KB before

Not sure if related but...
when I tried to save the text version of that form, I got a:
Field <  > does not have a corresponding component. Remove the declaration?

The text had a declaration: web: TNMHTTP;, but TNMHTTP was missing from the visual form.  Put it back on the form.  The file saved fine, but exe size was still 1280KB.

does anyone have any ideas?  

the program seems to run alright but I haven't tested it completely.  

I don't believe it's a W2K versus XP thing because the other exes were the same size as before.
