Issue Details

I need to distribute an NI product installer via physical media, but the installer is too large to fit on the media. How can I make the installer smaller in size?

Solution

You should not remove any components from the installer itself; it is possible the installer would not function if you removed software components or the resulting install could be corrupted.

You can use a compression program, such as WinZip or 7zip, to attempt to compress the installer more heavily. Such programs also often have the ability to break an archive into multiple smaller volumes, which could be distributed via physical media and reassembled.
