How does performance of SmartWIM compare against ImageX? I have read that there are certain conditions where ImageX essentially chokes on large text files - I think it has something to do with the internal compression. Do you have any information on this?

Heheh... (one of my favorite movies...)

Sorry for the late response.

SmartWIM and ImageX are more or less the same in speed since they both rely on WIMGAPI.
