        Description

        We now tell Wix to run MSZIP compression on all of the msi files. Now that installer.exe is part of the File table, it will get compressed. This has added a lot of time to the windows install builds.

        We only ship the English msi files. The non-English msi files are created only to generate the transforms (binary differences of the msi for localization). We should create a wix compiler flag to switch on/off MSZIP compression, and only have it on during the compilation of the English msi object file.
