JSI Tip 7362. When publishing a MSI package in Active Directory, you receive 'The size of this object exceeds the maximum size set by the Administrator'?

The subject error will occur if the size of this object exceeds the built-in limitation in the Active Directory database code.

The error is most prevalent when you repackage multiple applications into a single package.

NOTE: There is NO Active Directory, or Registry, setting that will change the built-in size limit.
