ISDEV : fatal error -7108: %s is too large to store in a .cab (2 GB maximum)

Our product is using Basic MSI to create setup.exe (IS 2016).

We do have lot of files and hence we have the following settings in settings.xml file to create multiple cab files if it exceeds certain limit.

<CompressedNetworkCABSize default="600"/>

Since the file size is more already it is creating around 2 cab files.

Recently the setup fails with the following error

ISDEV : fatal error -7108: %s is too large to store in a .cab (2 GB maximum)

The size of the data2.cab file exceeds 2 GB and hence we got this error. But why it is not creating a new cab file?

To build an MSI installer larger than the 2GB limit you would need to build the multiple cab files next to the MSI package (not compressed inside it)

You can achieve this by using the "Release Wizard", selecting "Custom" Release Configuration, and uncheck the "Create installation launcher (setup.exe)" checkbox.
