Hi Niraj,
You may need to parse BootstrapperApplicationData.xml which is created in
Temp folder every time you execute your bundle. On my machine, here is the

You can access this in Managed Bootstrapper application, using "Assembly.

Along with many other useful info, this also contains the size of almost
every package and payload you are packing with your bundle. Here is an
example from my machine:

<WixPackageProperties Package="NetFx451Redist" Vital="yes"
DisplayName="Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1" Description="Microsoft .NET
Framework 4.5.1 Setup" DownloadSize="70087104" *PackageSize="70087104"*
InstalledSize="70087104" PackageType="Exe" Permanent="yes"
Compressed="yes" DisplayInternalUI="no" Version="4.5.50938.18408"
Cache="yes" />
  <WixPackageProperties Package="VC_ReDist_120" Vital="yes"
DisplayName="Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 (x64)"
Description="Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 (x64) setup"
DownloadSize="7188536" *PackageSize="7188536" *InstalledSize="7188536"
PackageType="Exe" Permanent="yes"
Compressed="yes" DisplayInternalUI="no" Version="12.0.21005.1" Cache="yes"

<WixPayloadProperties Payload="MainProduct" Package="MainProduct"
Container="WixAttachedContainer" Name="MyProduct.msi" *Size="3973120"*
LayoutOnly="no" />

Hope this helps.
