OK, done in latest CVS version, FINALLY! I have improved NSIS's file mapping so it won't map the entire file into memory (including the installer data block which is saved in a memory mapped file too). I have successfully compiled 3 installers of random movie trailers, 1GB total. Aside from my computer begging for mercy everything went fine

23 minutes with no compression, 1 hour and 4 minutes with bzip2 compression and 28 minutes with zlib compression.

All installers installed all of the trailers with no problems and with the new extraction progress I could even see that it's not stuck

Operation choke computer completed successfully

Almost forgot... Use FileBufSize to let NSIS feast on your 20TB 5GHz QUAD DDR-III
