my install.exe is crashing

Hello

I have an installAnywhere project with a lot of files. Building the project takes a long time (19min on a brand new computer). When I want to test the installer it immediately crash.
It seems that the problem came from the number (or the size) of files because if I remove some files from the project the building takes less time (logical) and the installer works.

Any idea to solve this problem?

What is the size of install.exe after building.

Which version of IA are you using?

Did you apply SP1. If not, try it. The issue of installer size over 2GB crashing is partially resolved in 2015 SP1

In the advanced designer go to Project -> Plateforms and under the windows install you have the default Install Folder select:
System folder
