A problem that programmers quite often come across when creating an application is that the executable files associated with the installation end up being too big, occupying an unnecessary amount of space on the hard drive. To avoid this you can use UPX.

Reduce the size of your EXE files

The name UPX is really an acronym for Ultimate Packer for eXecutables, an application that can compress a wide range of different executable formats extremely quickly, covering those that are more common in Windows like EXE, SYS and COM as well as other that are more common on Linux and Mac like ELF and MACHO.

UPX doesn't have an interface and works only from the command line, but since its a tool focused on programmers, this shouldn't be a problem, as they normally do not have any trouble working from the command line.
