About size of Resharper distributive (read it)

Valentin Kipiatkov said to me that none of us (except me of course)
care about the size of Resharper distributive (i mean size of packed
installation).

I have packed Resharper files with "Win rar v3.50 (maximal compression)",
and have got 9 mb instead of 20 mb, moreover, with "7 zip v4.32 (maximal
for mine machine compression)" we have only 7.6 mb.

And also he said, that if you will not support me we will have what we have
now or worse (in future)  about the size.

Hello Vladimir,

we use compression options provided by InstallShield, and have never tried
to achieve better
compression. We'll take a look if we can do better. BTW, if you post a request
for this,
it would provide additional motivation for us.

I can make my request at least.
20 Mb most every days - its a little trouble, i have
only 1Gb of free per mounth and not happy when R# eat ~1/3 of all.
(but i happy for every new build)

7-8 Mb, if it possible, be very kindly.

I can recommend installer, that i use. Very powerful but
freeware, open source and realy easy to use. Simple try it.
Advanced compressions (disabled by default in options)
make compression most times better than WinRar can.

Here is the last releases
http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php

Some 3rd partys

And best GUI for it.
