Installation File Size?

Recommended Posts

Until a few days ago the SAS 5.7.0.1018 installation file size was about 28MB, now it's 17MB. Is this because of file compression or is something missing?

 

Thank you.

Hi 289kcode,

 

Good question.  You're right -- the size of the install packages is substantially smaller.  We did some reorganization of our definition set including disabling some deprecated rules, disabling very old rules that never detect in the wild anymore, etc.  Not only is the installation download smaller, but so are the definitions updates.  The product load time and scan speed should also be noticeably improved -- particularly on slower systems and systems that are highly infected.  These changes have zero impact on product efficacy, BTW.

 

Thanks,

 

Geoff
