  • Extract archive

    Hi to all, i'm new on this forum. :lol
    I have one question:
    how do you make extract an .arc archive with Setup Factory?
    i want that SF extract .arc archive directly in destination folder selected during install, without copy the arc to temp folder and after extract it.
    there is a script or plugin?

    Thanks for future answers

    I'm not familiar with .arc archives, however I don't believe what you want to do is possible with Setup Factory. You will need to extract the .arc file to a temporary location first before you will be able to perform any file operations on it, such as extracting it with a .arc tool.

      and if i put the arc in the same folder of setup, is not possible extract it from there with some command inside SF?

        Are you talking about the ARC compression that was used with BBS files, in the 80's? Setup Factory does not have built-in support for that. However, as long as you have an uncompressor for that format, you can bundle it into the installer, by adding it as a primer file to your project. During installation, you can fire up this external program and pass parameters to have the companion files decompressed where you need them.
