Calibre 3.48 Portable - Which files are needed for ebook-viewer?

I keep a portable copy of Calibre 3.48 in a folder just for the viewer (mostly for troubleshooting janky ePubs). The entire folder is close to 200 MB though.

Has anybody else attempted to strip it down to just the files necessary to run ebook-viewer? Or is that a terrible idea that I should be ashamed of for even thinking about?

Thanks in advance.

I had a look - IMO forget it.

You could cull a few .exe's in the Caiibre folder e.g. ebook-edit, lrf-viewer etc, but 170 of the 176 MB is in the Caiibre/app subfolder. The only place in there that you might be able to do a bit of pruning is the resources subfolder - but it's small beer too. And for me at least the DLLs and qt-plugins subfolders along with pylib.zip are definitely off limits no fly zones.

But - it's less than 180MB, I have images bigger than that

I was afraid of that. Thankfully I'm not really short on hard drive space.
