CRCCheck & Compression

Is it preferable to use CRCCheck?

If so why?

And what compression should I use?

The the end file or files are between 140 & 165mb

Thank you

CRC is always good to have. It makes sure your installer is not damaged (bad internet connection, virus, defected hd or simply edited installer).

As for the compression, it's up to you. As the docs say:

ZLib (the default) uses deflate compression. This mode uses less memory at runtime and is faster. BZip2 compression is usually better for large installers, but it is slower and uses a lot more memory at runtime.
