When I create a self extracting archive for installers (-sfx7zS.sfx or sfx7zSD.sfx) with a password I get an error dialog when launching the archive "Unsupported Method".
The other self extractors (e.g., -sfx7z.sfx) properly prompts for a password and without the -p argument the -sfx7zS.sfx archive also works correctly.
Is this a bug or can someone give an example using -sfx7zS.sfx and password.
Creating the archive with:
7z.exe a -sfx7zS.sfx -pfoo testinstaller.exe setup.exe
says "Everything is OK" but launching testinstaller.exe barfs.
All on XP SP2
Since installers usually do not require password, I didn't include decryption code to that sfx.
Our installer needs this. How hard would it be to modify the existing 7zS code to get a version with password support?
(Conversely, the other sfx-versions would presumably benefit, size-wise, from versions without password support).
You need to edit .dsp file:
1) Add encryption files
2) Add defines for encryption.
Use SfxWin.dsp as example.

Sorry, i have the same problem and I really can't figure out what I have to do...
Would you post an example?
Thanks in advance,
