JSI Tip 3193. Size error when you publish an application in Active Directory?

When you publish a Microsoft Windows Installer package to Active Directory, you receive:

The size of this object exceeds the maximum size set by the Administrator.

There is a hard coded size limitation in the database code of the Windows 2000 Active Directory. There is no registry entry or Active Directory setting that can change the limit.

If you are distributing multiple applications in a single package, distribute them as separate packages.
