Ebook size changed unexpectedly

brainsci I have been having problems with active ebook after formatting my hard drive.  I have a large ebook that compiled to 20 megs.  I used ebook 5.1 before, and then installed 5.05.  That created blocked links to executables, and so I switched to version 4.22.  4.22 works fine, but the ebooks are now three times larger.  Did I mess up the compression when I went back to version 4.22?  If so, what can I do about it?

EBookCompiler The compression in the 5.x is better than in 4.x

Check the files tab in the compiler.

I think that you will find that if you look there you are including some unnecessary files in the ebook - perhaps the previously compiled version of the ebook EXE itself... double click, and set the option to exclude it
