Hello,

compared with 1.94.2 (1,5 MB) ?

Because until the last version the EXE was in a compressed format.

Last week there started a long discussion,

because some users had problems with the compressed EXE. They wished that the new EXE should be uncompressed - and that is the reason for the size enlargement.
