Hi,

Today I run Delphi XE2 first time and I make few changes in setting and can not remember. Now when I going to compile then EXE file size 6.9 Mb (simple a form without any button or something) . How reset to original?

Delphi Compiler screenshot is here:

Runtime Package:

The only thing that can add that kind of sizeable data is 'debug informations' checked in
'Delphi Compiler' -> 'Linking'

But it looks like yours is correct. I can only tell for Delphi XE, but since this above fact has been true since D5, I suppose that is also the case for XE2.

I've looked at your other parameters, they look fine as well.

Maybe there is a small bug in XE2 ?
With older Delphi versions, I sometimes screwed a project in such similar ways (undetermined project config errors) .
Best option then : Recreate the project file and add all of your current project files and needed parameters.

First time when I build it's size 1.2 Mb

But after change in project option it increases. Thus I suppose I make mistake in project option.

try and rename this configuration file
<system drive>\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Embarcadero\8.0\DefProject.bdsproj
in XE project configuration file is DefProject.bdsproj .
Renaming this file and restarting XE should create a default DefProject.bdsproj file.
