    Visual Studio Setup Deployment Project Issues

    Hi, to make it brief, I added into Visual Studio 2022 Windows Installer, it is supposed to be .MSI Setup project.

    I added all the files and folders as well as logo into the project.

    In settings, I changed directory name and desktop link and program link and etc...

    So, in settings, there is an option x86 and x64 project. I would want to run the installer on both 32-bit and 64-bit target machine, as far as I know x86 option should work for both, or maybe I am wrong,

    or I have to build both instances?

    So, my project 2.3 Gb, so I could not build as compressed setup option, since it allows only 2 Gb MAX, so I tried compressed CABINET file.CAB file as an option, but failed as well I attached a photo of an

    error, but third option worked "as loose uncompressed files".

    Is there a way to be able to compress into SETUP.MSI file or at least a .CAB file on the side to be able to run the installer.

    Is there a way to have .EXE SETUP option in the project to be able to compress all the files into it?

    Those technical questions above I would like to have some of your opinion or suggestions.

    Get back, thanks in advance.
