Hi Guys,

Slightly off topic... Since SP1, VC et al, have included the "Feature Pack" (Office Ribbon stuff) in the vcredist, 
hence the bloat.  I'm still trying to track down the EXE bloat, as others appear to have reported it too.

That makes sense to me.  I just upgraded to Visual C++ 2008 Express
SP1 (http://www.microsoft.com/express/vc/) and made some minor Nmap
changes and it now compiles fine with this version.  I also updated
vcredist_x86.exe to the 2008 SP1 version.  MS did bloat it to more
than double its previous size:

-rw------- 1 fyodor fyodor 1821192 2008-06-15 17:39 vcredist_x86.exe
-rw-rw-r-- 1 fyodor fyodor 4216840 2009-04-25 13:23 vcredist_x86.exe

With the new vcredist and the new compiler version, our setup.exe
expands from 13 megs to 15 megs and our win32.zip from 4 megs to 7
megs.  I don't think there is much we can really do about that.
