    How do I go about starting a Setup.exe from a zip?

    Re: Zip

    I'm not sure I'm understanding but if you're trying to get a self extracting zip file to run a certain file within it after extracting then simply enter that file name, i.e. autorun.exe into the appropriate field. So:

    Check "create SFX archive" then goto the "Advanced" tab and click on "SFX options" then click on "Advanced SFX options" then enter your filename, i.e. "autorun.exe" into the "Run after extraction" field.

    If I've misunderstood your question then just explain it a bit better and we'll get this figured out.

      Corey you hit it on the nose, but... LOL where in budda's name do I find:
      "Check "create SFX archive" then goto the "Advanced" tab and click on "SFX options" then click on "Advanced SFX options" then enter your filename, i.e. "autorun.exe" into the "Run after extraction" field."?

        I use WinRar 2.90 to create archives. If you're using something else just look for the same thing, a "Run after extraction" field somewhere in there and enter your filename there...

          WinRar Version 3.00 is out ...

          If you use WinZip, this uses a 'Self Extractor' add-in,
          get this from:
          http://www.winzip.com/other.htm

          Create your zip file, open in WinZip then goto Actions / Make.exe file, then follow the wizard.

          If you havn't registered WinZip yet, I'd go for WinRaR:

            Why winrar and not Winzip?

              I find it more flexible but I haven't used Winzip for years...

                You can try them both as a shareware download, try them and use the one you like most.

                    There is a FREE tool that does ZIP compression and self extractors. It is free for both private and commercial use.
