VMProtect output size difference between demo version and full version?

Postby rhyttr » Thu Aug 06, 2020 4:34 am

I just bought the vmprotect pro version

I use it for protect my dll file. Using the same project file, the
output file size of the demo version and the pro version are very
different.

demo version:
source file 102KB output file 1148KB (1168%)

pro version:
source file 102KB output file 6436KB (6430%)

Is this correct?
How to reduce the output size?
Thanks!

It's normal, because the demo version uses old version of a virtual machine (VM) from 2.X and it has different size than VM from the full version.

Only if we assume that (6430%) is "normal" IMHO there should be some option to make it much smaller, 2, 3, 5x, but 60x in size is normal? Really?
Add some option to have even less protection or more compression but much smaller size, there are apps where size is critical.
