AVI resources in shell32.dll

i have an installer that fails because of a missing AVI resource (the 
magnifier in front of the computer) in the buildin shell32.dll. To get the 
installer running i tried to build the resource. i used Paintshop Pro 6 to 
create the single pictures of the AVI and built the AVI with the animation 
builder of Paintshop Pro. The created AVI work (at least in the Media 
Player), but my new AVI is 53k big instead of the 7k of the native 
shell32.dll. Reducing the color deep of the single picturs does not have any 
effect to the size of the AVI.

What do i need to change to get the resource as small as the native on? Are 
other tools needed to build the resource? Using compression ? Is there a tool 
to analyse the native resource in deep ? Any ideas?
