Using 7z installer

Help

  • Hi. I want to create a simple install that extracts the files (with user option to select the extract path) then runs an application in a sub folder.
    Using 7zS.sfx this works fine for running RunProgram="mysubdir\myapp.exe" but you get no user option to select the extract path but the Title / begin prompt works.
    In the config.ini I need to get it to give the user the option of where to extract to as the exe I run is the full app and does not require setup once extracted.
    My copy is:
    copy /b 7zS.sfx + v7setup.ini + vvv.7z zzz.exe
    My current v7setup.ini is:
    ;!@Install@!UTF-8!
    Title="LIVE M V7"
    BeginPrompt="Do you want to install LIVE M V7?"
    RunProgram="LM_V7\LM.exe"
    ;!@InstallEnd@!

    I have tried with other sfx files but the icon changes / the exe wont run / I lose the prompt/title etc. tnx in advance dave@g7rau.co.uk

      There is no such feature.
      If you need it, you can try to change source code to get it.
