Auto-run single executables

  • When an archive contains an executable named “setup.exe”, PowerArchiver offers to automatically run this executable.

    It should also offer to run an executable if this executable is the only file in the archive. For instance, I just downloaded an archive named, which contains only a file named MySQL-python.exe-1.2.0.win32-py2.4.exe, which is clearly the “Setup program”.

    Thanks in advance,

  • This could be confusing, because I download a lot of utility programs that don’t have installers, but are a single .exe in a zip file. But for many things, it would be nice.
