Making self extract exe with default unzip to desktop



  • Hi

    I am trying to make self extracting exe. I would like the default “Unzip to” folder to be the users desktop location. I tried “%homedrive%%homepath%\desktop” but they don’t work. I have also tried “%userprofile%\desktop”. Note I have entered the variables without double quote. They all don’t work. It extracts the file in a mysterious location instead. :eek: When searching for the file, the file seems to appear in the query but there is no absolute path if I check the properties.

    Is there any other alternative?

    Thanks in advance

    Joe
