IsWiBuild.dll errors when compiling a large project

Have a Basic project that is near 2GB with over 18K files.
No matter which OS I try to compile with I receive the following error:

Windows 7 x64:
Faulting application name: isdev.exe, version: 20.0.0.496, time stamp: 0x524bad45
Faulting module name: IsWiBuild.dll, version: 20.0.0.500, time stamp: 0x53972f73
Exception code: 0xc0000409
Fault offset: 0x000d1c58
Faulting process id: 0xcac
Faulting application start time: 0x01d0bef579134887
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2013\System\isdev.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield\2013\System\IsWiBuild.dll
Report Id: 0287cad1-2aeb-11e5-a353-005056c00008

Windows XP:
EventType : BEX P1 : isdev.exe P2 : 20.0.0.496 P3 : 524bad45
P4 : IsWiBuild.dll P5 : 20.0.0.500 P6 : 53972f73 P7 : 000d1c58
P8 : c0000409 P9 : 0000000

I have yet to count the components in each Feature but would assume Installshield would show an error if too many Components.

Any ideas? Going to try Command line build to see if it makes a difference.

If you are using a CAB file there is a limit of 2 GB filesize

Re: IsWiBuild.dll errors when compiling a large project

no .CAB, it is uncompressed.
Component count is way under the 1600 limit
Project is located on the network

Re: IsWiBuild.dll errors when compiling a large project

moved packaging folders locally.
Now it crashes when extracting COM data from components
here is the error:
AppName: isdev.exe AppVer: 20.0.0.496 ModName: msvcr90.dll
ModVer: 9.0.30729.6161 Offset: 0006ccd5

Re: IsWiBuild.dll errors when compiling a large project

The problem was that Installshield for some reason marked 14 files as "Extract COM at build" (which I never do).
Reverting these 14 components solved the problem
