To settle this question I offer;
I regularly compress NoteTab Pro to a size you can copy to a floppy and
still keep many of the bells and whistles.
I don't have much need to run it from a floppy but, I could. The
compressed executable size for the latest version is 669,184 bytes, that
just barely fills half a floppy.
I compress each final issue, the betas won't work when compressed, and
have had no discernible ill-effects. I am currently writing this email
with a compressed copy.
I do this with UPX, downloadable from
http://upx.sourceforge.net/download/upx123w.zip. This compresses to
one-third of NotePro's size.
Although you can de-compress the same file with the program it is much
simpler to keep an original copy of the .exe file.
Of course, this does take a bit of initiative, if you want NotePro to be
portable this is one way that works!!
