I noticed that the option to add the optimize archive function to the context menu is missing on Windows 10.
Opening each archive with the interface in order to click it becomes tedious with many files.
Same for others functions like Remove Archive Encryption
Shell Ext. - Creating SFX
Can you add a new option to Shell Ext. menu (for archives)
e. g. “Create self-extracting archive + Options” ?
It should work like standart “Create self-extracting zip”
but before creating EXE
it must show “PA SelfExtractor” dialog
(like PA main wnd > Actions menu > Make EXE file")
or SFX Wizard
(tools menu > SFX Wizard)
As for me , Make EXE dialog is better then the Wizard
But you can add an option to the Configuration Dialod
so users can select what they want to use:
dialog or Wizard
I support this idea ;)
at the moment if you come across a zip or cab file ythe shell extensions if selected will give you the option to creat a sfx file.
what i think you want is to be able to sauy zip or cab in one go to a sfx file even if you don’t have a archive already
Sorry, maybe I don’t understamd your reply properly…
I want to be able to set advansed SFX options (like Overwrite options, default extraction directory, sfx caption etc) when creating EXE file with shell extensions…
now i understand you want more advance features with the sfx shell extensions we already have avaliable.
With current “Create Self-Extracting zip/cab” option in shell extensions
we can convert archives to sfx without setting up any options…
Just came across this post, and I wasn’t confused at all:
- the current shell extension does not let you set any of the important options for a SFX like the Default “UnZip To” Folder which are possible in the interface driven method to create the EXE
I would definitely like to see this improvement in the shell extension to create SFX as well. Whatever default options are being used this way are things I would never actually use unless I was only ever creating and recreating the same exact SFX :rolleyes:.
