    A decompression error has occurred (#2026)

    I have only 1 customer who always gets this error for an image that is compressed and the image is called Thumbnail.jpg.
    I have 5 other images that are called thumbnail.JPG and they have no issues de compressing.
    So the one that fails has an upper case T and the jpg is lower case. I can't change the name as the sim needs it exactly matching.
    What i can do to prevent this error is to not compress it.
    But sometimes i forget and when i do updates i need to re add all the files again to Setup factory in case i have added new files. And from what i know there is no way to detect new files in my directory where i store the files. So i am going to forget then this 1 customer is going to contact me again asking for me to not compress the file.

    So any help would be great.

    Instead of deleting all files from the project and re-adding them, use a folder reference: Place the files and subfolders to be included in the project into a "release" folder, and add that folder as a reference in the project. You can then update the contents of the folder as needed, and rebuild the setup without making changes to the list of files. As apparently you need to set a different setting of a file, add this file separately to the list of files in the project, so you can override the settings of that single file. The file will not be included twice.

      I was not sure you can just update files if more got added to your project. And i never realized there was a folder reference option rather than single files. This makes my life much easier and also less hassle as i was doing it the hard way. With so many packages i had to spend some detailed time setting them up each project or during beta when adding new files i was starting over to ensure i was not missing any. Now i am really happy.

      Thank you very much Ulrich for your dedicated time you spend on this forum as this is one of the best installers i know of.
