Why the setup file is so large now?

Post by yickistar » September 25th, 2010, 9:55 am

The setup file of PD5 (http://www.password-depot.com/download/pdepot5.exe) is now very large, almost 26.5M. However, after the installation, all the portable files are just about 5M. I think the setup is not compressed at all as it was in previous versions. Would you please compress it before packaging? It is painful for non-broadband users.

We introduced a new feature:

A dictionary of common used words and often used passwords was integrated into the program to analyze how strong the used passwords are against dictionary attacks.

This dictionaly is about 27 MB and we do not used in in the portable editions. If you want to use it on the portable editions too, just copy the file passwords.dic from your program directory on the USB stick
