Shrink protected executable

Post by Lukedepity » Sat Mar 05, 2022 8:03 pm

Hello, I downloaded the demo version of Enigma to perform some tests, and I noticed that it increases the size of the executable considerably, in my case, the protected files would have to be the same size or even better smaller than the original size. Is there any way to do this?

When protecting the file, protection adds some code to the program, the size of this code could be large, depending on the settings, but minimum is 2 megabytes (can be larger!). Even if Enigma compresses the code of file, including protection code it could produce large file than original.

Unfortunately, if that is not suitable for you, nothing can be made from our side...
