New Error in Compressed Release

Hello Team,

My project has been successfully using Installshield to generate installers for our project until recently.  We currently have two release configurations, one with compression using MSZip, and one without compression. Each of these releases normally builds without error, but we have encountered the following error in the latest build of the release with compression. The release without compression builds successfully.

Compressing "C:\...\Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.VisualBasic.Features.resources.dll" to "C:\...\Media\Release 1\DiskImages\DISK1\Data14.cab"

What could be causing this error?

How big is this installer?

One of the reasons for seeing the 1627 error is when the size limit of 2GB for a compressed MSI installer is exceeded.
