Post tryout exe-compressors

Trying out some exe-compressors, here are results of two of these babies on flashfxp.exe_v22build968
Original byte-size 2.316.666 bytes.

UPX1.90w (executed with upxshell309build2511) resulted in 1.155.962 bytes
PECompact184 with it's jcalg1-compression resulted in 719.360 bytes

Compressed or not, no difference in performance (but not really tested). Aspack-compressor on ffxp got as far as an error-message.

Well the version of FlashFXP you tested was compiled with extended-debugging...so the executable size is larger to begin with. Compressing the executable really doesn't improve or enhance anything, so why bother in the first place.

there is no compression right now for easier troubleshooting
bigstar will re-enable compression toward the end of beta

This build of FlashFXP was compiled with extended debuging, this is not compatible with exe compressors and may make FlashFXP unstable. We do not recommend you compress the exe using an exe compressor.
