Self Extractors

How do I make a self extracting file using IEXPRESS.exe (in system32)

All I want it to do is basically make a few directories and then distribute some files into them.

I'll keep playing with it though.

Thanks.

I am not sure if this is what you are talking about but, you can make something like that with an admin tool. I know the tool is in win2k srv not sure if in xp pro. I believe it is called wininstall le. It lets you create .msi files which can be installed as if you have that app.

For example: say a network admin needs to install office to 500 computers. Basically he uses this program to take a snapshot of the windows machine. Then he installs the app, in this case office. Now he reruns the app. When the app is rerun it sees what has changed in the system: registry, added folders, etc and records them in a .msi file. You can now use that file to install office on the rest of the machines.

I beleive you can also you winzip and winrar (use the wizard) to create a self extracting zip file. Hope this information is helpful.

Thanks,

Jera
