Cannot make OO2.0.1 smaller

Just download the OO2.0.1 and install it. (File version for soffice.exe is 1.9.8985.500.) I try to use UPX and with the options:
--best --compress-icons=0 --nrv2d --crp-ms=999999 -k

I cannot get the DLL compressed. I cannot get the EXE compressed. Why? John, any idea? I use the UPX 125 W version.

Here is the result I get for program\components\*.dll:

C:\upx125w>upx --best --compress-icons=0 --nrv2d --crp-ms=999999 -k c:\Program Files\OpenOffice.org 2.0\program\components\*.dll

Use the beta

You need to use the beta. The stable version can't compress OO.o with the usual options.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

What beta version of OO.o?

Then may I know what beta version of OO.o you use? I even want to start on the compiliation of OO.o myself, so if you can give me the CVS tag, that would be great! Many thanks.

In your version history, you say at January 3, 2006:
* Updated to OO.o 2.0.1

UPX Beta

I'm taking a guess that John meant the UPX beta, not an OO.o beta.
