Windows Install / Remove Programs - Reports Wrong Application Size

P: n/a
When I install my application built using VS2008 C#, the application size is
reported incorrectly. The application is actually 40 Meg in size. When you
click on "Add Remove Programs" from the Control Panel my application appears
in the list of installed programs but the size incorrectly is reported as
2.9 Gig. Where does Windows get the information on the application size and
how do I get it to return the correct size?

Thanks

it is showing the size it takes to install full VS 2008, with me also this is
the problem. But it is not occupying that much disk space. U can't change the
size in the add and remove programs.
