Executing a file after a self extracting archive has done its job.

    I want to create a self extracting archive that executes a program from the archive after the expansion. Other self extracting archives had a feature like this if you could get the right program (which I haven't). The idea here is to extract and execute an installer.

    Of course, I'm trying to create this on a Linux machine for use on a Windows machine, but that is another story. I assume I can specify where the self extracting archive will be run.

    Thanks.

    look at "7-Zip Extra" distribution
    e.g. 7z920_extra.7z
