I created a package which size is 3.5 GB. The build was on Linux 64 and finished successfully. When I try to run the generated setup.run it prints error: File too large. Is there a limit on a generated package? The problem may be related to the file system and not to BitRock. The package is defined as 64 bit package.

The safe size limitation is 2GB. In Linux x86 you would have got an error at built time (we will work to make a check before starting the build). In the cases in which such a big installer is required, we recommend using the CDROM mode. Yu just need to set a first disk size value high enough to make InstallBuilder generate a single disk:

The suggestion above worked. It is necessary to define the cdromFirstDiskSize so it will be big enough for the whole tree before it is compress, otherwise, it splits to several disks. I defined it to 100 GB and it worked for me.
