Greetings all, I'm wondering what is the minimum fileset needed for 7-Zip to work with 7z, CAB, RAR & ZIP, as well as still have the rightclick context menu? So far I have it down to:
7zC.sfx (for creating self extracting archives?)
It seems to be working fine, but I'm not sure what the Codecs are for. The reason I am looking into this is because I am thinking about doing a diskless Win9X, so minimal is best.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
7-zipn.dll and 7zFMn.exe for Windows 2000 /XP.
Lang\en.ttt is not required.
I have the same fileset on a memory stick. I did one other thing though, I ran UPX on all the excutables. I have 39 files, at 1.81MB total.
I ran "upx --best X:\7-zip\*" and also ran it in the codecs and formats path as well. Saves a lot of space, and works fine.
Err, actually I guess I have more files than you. I have:
But it's all just 1.81MB after UPX compression, so yeah...
Ok, now that the newer version is out, I've repackaged 7-zip for my thumb drive. I used 38 files (got rid of en.ttt). Original was 3,573,702 bytes, repackaged with UPX was 1,877,958 bytes.
I want full 7-zip capabilities myself, and I let msvcrt.dll tag along in case I actually come across a system that doesn't have it. Might be rare but you never know...
this can be scripted into NSIS:
1-check windows version..
2-install required file only..
3-upx file after installation..
How i can upx the file after th installation,?
How execute upx in nsis?
After installation is easy. Just run these three commands, substituting your paths correctly.
X:\upx.exe --best Y:\7-zip\*
X:\upx.exe --best Y:\7-zip\formats\*
X:\upx.exe --best Y:\7-zip\codecs\*
Where X:\ is probably some path like C:\Program Files\UPX\ or wherever you put it, and Y:\ is wherever you have your copy of 7-zip that you want to compress.
For NSIS, you'll have to wait for MAAD to reply ;)
