    How can you extract .rar file though Setup Factory.

    Re: Rar files

    Hi,
    You cannot explicitly extract RAR files using Setup Factory, meaning that Setup Factory has no built in RAR support. But what you could do (I'm not sure if there are programs out there with this capability, but there might be) is execute a program and pass it certain command line arguments (one of them being the location of your RAR file) that would instruct it to extract your RAR file.

      Jim.
      I found the best way to do this is not to.
      I find that WinACE has better Comp. Try using unace32.exe to unace your files.
      If you want to use RAR anyways you will have to find a command line version available. I can create an easy one for you if you wish it will be made in VB5 or 6 tho so it will have to have more files in your application installed...

      But if you want to use ACE:

      I find that all my files are smaller in ACE format than in RAR format. I also found that unace32.exe is a nice program for DOS command line unaces...
      It is dist. freely at http://www.winace.com/cgi-bin/getfil...eAce&width=628

      Then create a SHELL OPS that will automate the process for you:
      eg:
      Code:
      Execute Program , %AppDir%\unace32.exe, e %AppDir%\maps.ace %AppDir%\maps\
      Of course you have to have the unace32.exe file install into %AppDir%

      Hope this helps
