why is the file size of winSCP.exe since 4.2.6 5 times greater than 4.2.5 ??
Another compiler? Kind regards - Ronald
Portable .exe until 4.2.5 was compressed (using UPX). In 4.2.6 this was removed and the .exe in the "portable executables" archive is the same one as in the "installation package" (which was never compressed).
Exactly. The original reason for compressions was to fit the .exe onto 1.44 floppy disk. 4.2.x does not fit anyway.Uncompressed is less prone to errors, don't use cpu to uncompress prior execution, and the size difference is insignificant nowadays.
