[mkgmap-dev] NSIS Problems with 2G limit

Hi Christoph,

you'll find the answer here: http://nsis.sourceforge.net/I_get_an_error_when_compiling_large_installers

There seems to be a limit in the archive format of the installer so that the compressed data may not be larger than 2 GB. The recommendation is to use a multi-volume install instead - that is to split the data into several files. Using plug-ins the installer can read those additional files and install them together with its regular payload.

As this is quite often discussed there seems to be no other workaround.
