I am using InstallBuilder 8 on a Mac, and whether I press "Quick Build" or "Build", the whole installer program is recreated, all the files are added etc., resulting in a rather long building time, every time I want to test a new feature in the installer characteristics or behaviour (the instaleld files themselves are not changed).
What could I be doing wrong?

How much time does it take to create the installer? Could you check if you get any warning logged in the build log such as: "Product installer was build with a different InstallBuilder version. Full build was required"

I'm having the same problem. Not only do I get full rebuilds all the time, the "downloadable components" build takes 4-5 times longer still (and never quick builds).
Its taking maybe half an hour to do a full rebuild, 2-3 hours to do a full downloadable rebuild, and I'm doing this for 3 OSs. Its a tad extreme. Might this be due to heavy use of packing filters? (I'm not adding lots of individual files, instead I'm filtering a a number of directories so that we can change the contents without having to rewrite the installer.
