Is this right, ComponentTotalSize has a 2Gb limit?

I have been trying to write a script to check the size of a rather large 6Gb installation, and most of the size and disk space checking functions in Installshield fail to correctly identify the size of my component. Has anyone any experience with this, and any work around that will let me correctly calculate the size of the component?

This function returns the total uncompressed size, in bytes, of the selected component.
I believe the return value is of type NUMBER which is a signed four-byte integer. It can hold any value between -2147483648 and +2147483647, which is equivalent to 2 Gig.
