FIS download size


Why is the FIS now 250mb? It used to be 130kb. Does anyone know what they've done that's bumped the size up so much?


No one has replied to this post.

The size is consistent with that reported in the 22/23 user guide but the reason for the increase is unknown.

Hi Greg Devereux-Cooke,

 I hope all's well on your side.

The application was upgraded from a lower version of .net (which was going out of support from Microsoft) to .net core. To help the end users not install any windows updates on their local machines to use the current version of FIS, we have incorporated the necessary dependencies within the package. This inclusion of the dependencies is the main reason for the increase in the file size.

Have a fantastic day!
