Access Runtime 2010 file size

Can anyone explain  why the Access runtime 2010 executable, at about 180MB  is twice the size of the 2007 runtime version (about 60MB)?

Is it the webdatabase stuff? Or?

Thanks, Lou

  First, we need to get clear what were talking about as there is no "Access runtime 2010 executable" in terms of a db.  So exactly what type of db are we talking about; regular db, a de (source code stripped out), web db, etc.

  Second, have you tried a compact and repair on it?

Hello Jim,

I am talking about the accessruntime.exe the one you run to install access runtime.

Lou,

  So your not talking about a DB, but the runtime distribution itself?  Difference in size is because of all the new features.  It's just different and there's nothing you can do about it.
