    A Squared comes in two sizes, why?

    One is 12.27Mb from filehippo.com and another one is 44.4Mb from download.com

    They are the same versions so why are they different sizes?
    Thanks for your response.

    I suspect that one has the definition files and one doesn't. Just run a2 updater.

    Both website lists the size as the same but when U do the download then download.com pops up your download with 44.4 megs. I would think if the hippo is advertizing it at 12megs than that is the program not the update. How can U get an update to a program that you don't have installed yet.

    Pardon me but I have to say, Hello!

    If you think I am rude than go see Clint Eastwood's new movie.
    Thanks for your response.

    You have to install the program first to download the definition updates. It's like antivirus or antispyware updates.

    If you did that, then you would notice that the signature files are about 40MB. Take that away and you're left with the core application, which comes out to around 12-15MB.
