Can you please explain when you see the size difference? Is it when you compile in 2 different options.

look, i have the 2 projects both in release mode, both have the same files, both compile ok, but the dlls they produce are of different size, the original project is 130 kb , the other project the dll is 300 kb..... so why is this ? is there any option i have to activate or deactivate or smt, help please

ps>: 2 projects are for the same thing, so i expect the dll must be the same size.

If both have the same thing then it might so happen that some extra libs are needed for both or else it cannot be the case that both having the same configuration and same code differ in size.
