I have enabled the minimal install setting and have made my components downloadable but still the windows installer is 5 mb. Is there a way to reduce this even further? I have noticed the resulting installer exe can be further zipped for a 1.5 mb savings or lzma for a 1.9 mb saving but then something would need to self extract this.

currently because of this size we need to daisy chain this installer with a minimal nsis installer that compiles down to 150kb that downloads the InstallBuilder installer of 5 mb which then downloads the 20 mb of game components for install. It would be nice to remove the first installer as it is not cross-platform and adds complexity to the installation experience.

Unfortunately the minimum size of our installers is around 5mb.
