How to save some megabytes of distribution size?

I've read the Brian's guide on creating MSI installers for AppUp, and have a small question: Is it a must to include the C++ runtime into a result if an application statically links all needed libraries? That runtime adds 2-3 megabytes to the result size, but I saw a few titles on the store which are less than 1 megabyte. How to reach this goal (< 1 MB of distribution package size) for very simple utilities?

If you know the names of these titles I would be happy to have a look to see what they packaged in the MSI. It could be that they did not include the Debug CRT libraries.
