With the current size it is kind of getting out from being able to do that easily.

Yes, I'm taken aback by how large QT is as well. It really does make the zip pretty big for such a small project.

Eventually I am going to compile QT as a static library and link against it. Also, the current EXE has it's full symbol table and all that goodness in there. Once I get to a stable version I'll strip the EXE of all debugging info. Between static linking and stripping the EXE it should become much smaller. Then I could use something like UPX to compress the resulting EXE. The hope is to get a single file version under 2MB.

On an unrelated note, I've been making new builds pretty much daily. I will be updating SVN in a little bit. I'll probably post another binary build tonight. So if things don't work for anyone or there are other issues maybe check back in a couple of days and see if there is a build to correct the issue.
