Massive increase in compiled size

Post by damon.cognito » Thu 24 Mar 2016 15:03

I have a tiny project that runs housekeeping etc outside the main product that uses EF6. Since updating to 7.4.592 from 7.3.457 the size of the compiled application has gone from 350Kb to 5,400Kb. Nothing else has changed in the project - is there a reason for this happening please?

VS2013 c# EF6

The size of the Devart.* assemblies in v7.4.592:
Devart.Data.dll = 274 432 bytes
Devart.Data.PostgreSql.dll = 986 112 bytes
Devart.Data.PostgreSql.Entity.dll = 621 568 bytes

v7.3.457:
Devart.Data.dll = 274 432 bytes
Devart.Data.PostgreSql.dll = 982 528 bytes
Devart.Data.PostgreSql.Entity.dll = 619 008 bytes

The difference is about only 5Kb.

Please analyse your application (resources, etc) to find out the reason of increasing compiled size.
