Finally found my bloody lost password. :-[
you did also install the JVM, it uses about 60 MB
Quite correct; now, if only all of my apps used it, everything would be fine, but
no, I have to keep my HD crammed with all sorts of underlying software, such
as several VBs, several .NETs, M$-JVM, none of which interoperate with the
respective disparate apps. So nice to have all that BLOAT mucking about!
Ironically, the idea of having each one installed is to provide less HD usage.
This is the same for each M$ machine that I own, use, or attend.
Frankly, it is somewhat ridiculous.
while Wildfire uses only 15 MB.
Well, one of them, or both uses a bit more, to make ~86Mb total.
If you have already an installed Java 1.5.0_06 JVM
you may want to use it.
The M$ JVM is installed, but not compatible, or removable.
It is Java, so there’'s nothing with compiling.
No, that is not quite true.
In fact, Java code can be compiled, although there is no guarantee of success when
doing so, which is why I asked (hopefully) if anyone had done so with Wildfire.
I have compiled several apps myself, some of which worked well and others that
did not turn out to be sufficiently stable.
Compiling them can serve to reduce size and increase speed, often greatly,
but it isn’'t usually the easiest task that you will ever undertake.

Around 10k here, not really overwhelming.
