Don't embed the cabs in the MSIs, then won't waste space in the Windows Installer cache.

Subject: [wix-users] avoid duplicate cache?


when installing MSI packages using a bootstrapper, the packages are cached both by Windows Installer (c:\Windows\Installer) and by Burn (in the package cache). Is there a way to save some space here by enforcing Windows Installer to use the Burn package cache? Yes, MSI packages can become really big....
