Help with making 7zip sfx
« on: April 08, 2008, 10:48:00 PM »
I've been trying to make some self extracting archives with 7zip, and I can make them, but that isn't all I want to do.
I want to have it to where after it extracts, run a program that was extracted.
example: create a sfx with file.txt and program.exe called archive.exe
as soon as you run archive.exe and the two files are extracted, run program.exe.
That is what I am wanting to do, but I don't know how to do that.
All I know how to do is right click on a folder, and then click on 7-zip|add to archive, and check the create sfx, which doesn't give me the option to run a program after it is extracted, so if someone could help me out here, that would be super awesome!
