v8.1.2 binary bloat

Post by FredS » Mon 09 Dec 2019 02:19

My.EXE size difference between the two releases:

Code: Select all

Win32
37,194,072 bytes v8.1.2 (26-Nov-2019)
35,547,648 bytes v8.0.1 (22-Jul-2019) with bug fixes via supplied source
possibly more for Win64
I used a cmd compile pointing back to 8.0.1 to assure the same code base.

When I compile my project using Berlin the resulting EXE is much larger in 8.12 than in 8.01.

To test I compiled using the command line compiler and simply switched back to the previous version:

Code: Select all

@SET UNILIB=D:\VCL\UniDAC\8.0.1 (19-Aug-2019)\Lib\Delphi24

We've compiled the demo project distributed with our components using UniDAC 8.0.1 and UniDAC 8.1.2 в RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin -- the resulting applications don't differ significantly in size. Please clarify what steps we should take in our environment to get the results identical to yours.

Tried that and you're correct.
Embarrassing.. but I still have those EXEs on a backup and will inspect them closer when time permits.

Turns out one had a resource linked in while the other did not.

Sorry about that..
