Modification of the PA Self Extractor



  • It would be nice if the PA Self Extractor could be modified just a bit.

    Display a custom MessageBox BEFORE & AFTER extraction. You can either have a simple MessageBox telling you that extraction will begin, or there could be a Yes/No MessageBox,
    so the user can cancel. A license agreement would also be nice.

    It’s similar to WinZip Self Extractor 2.2, but it only supports ZIP files!

    This would be a nice additon to PA 9.1, wouldn’t it?

    Any comments/questions would be highly appreciated!



  • In PA : Tools SFX Wizard

    MessageBox telling you that extraction will begin, or there could be a Yes/No MessageBox, so the user can cancel.

    The options screen gives "Do not prompt before extracting"
    If this is NOT checked, then there is a prompt/cancel option.

    A license agreement would also be nice.

    The dialog (see above) also includes a link “Legal” - this opens a file (suk.html) which begins:
    “PowerArchiver SFX (self-extracting) archives are not protected by any legal warranty…”



  • It would be even better if you could have your OWN custom dialog box and license texts!

    To get a better idea of what I’m saying, install WinZip Self Extractor 2.2 (download from
    the WinZip site, of course).
