files differences aside, i focused on the AcroRead.msi itself.
Shark007: 1.68 MB (1,763,840 bytes)
XhmikosR: 3.75 MB (3,936,256 bytes)
this is interesting because Shark007 may have done much more on the MSI itself.
maybe v9.1 Lite can still be reduced further?
I'm not quite sure that this difference is only because of Shark007 having removed much more stuff. He maybe did, but for now I have already done everything I knew. You should also compare the sizes of the unmodified MSI of v9.0 and v9.1. If Shark007 has done more modifications to the MSI, then he might drop by and tell us his secrets. Or you can just experiment, like I did, and see what might come out of that. (That's the reason of the tutorial, I suppose )
Original MSI sizes:
v9.0: 1.72 MB (1,812,480 bytes)
v9.1: 3.78 MB (3,971,072 bytes)
Difference: 2,158,592 bytes
Lite MSI sizes:
v9.0: 1.68 MB (1,763,840 bytes)
v9.1: 3.75 MB (3,936,256 bytes)
Difference: 2,172,146 bytes
v9.0 original-Lite MSI: 48,640 bytes
v9.1 original-Lite MSI: 34,816 bytes
