@Gewku

You could use UPX. This is a packer for executables. You don't need to unpack it, it's still executable, but it works only with the 32 Bit Versions. http://upx.sourceforge.net/

I have compressed your exe with UPX from 45.2 MB to 15.5 MB. But it only compress the exe not the other files in the directory. So overall the whole directory shrank from 67 MB to 38 MB.

This isn't my area of expertise though, so if anyone else has advice, let me know.

Thanks a lot either way =D
