  1. 7z Self extracting

    OK, 1) Why did you decied that " MySetup.msi (NOT WITHIN A FOLDER!!!)" ??? It is in the folder and when checking the zip created after "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir%" the MSI is present!!! 2) both msi and exe are created from a simple visual studio .net, C# setup project. Framework 3.5.. No problem with that part at all! More over - and that is the point you keep missing - The self extracting zip works just fine (and run the MSI and all) when i run it on win 7 (extract exe and MSI and execute it all!!!). The same self extracting zip - will not work on win XP. SO ???

    Yes - the commad i use is exactlly like yours. I tried installing Windows Installer 4.5. Did not help. Can you please just post the link to what you think is the relevant SFX version - because i am very confused by now...
  3. 7z Self extracting

    when using the "7zsd.sfx" from 7zSD 1.5 beta (build 2478) May 10, 2012 Modified 32-bit module (for LZMA compression method that 7-Zip uses by default). (downloaded from 7-zip.info) and trying to run it product - it gives me an error "Could not read SFX configuration or configuration Not found". When using "7zsd.sfx" from 7z920_extra (downloaded from 7-zip.org) it works but only on win7. when using "7zsd.sfx" from 7zSD 1.4.3 Release (build 2367) January 21, 2012 (downloaded from 7-zip.info) it still gives me this "Could not read SFX configuration or configuration Not found" Please help!

    Hi, tried both of the last suggestions.... Still same errors. Could it be because my zip contains more then one file ? See , the zip contains these items : - MySetup.msi - setup.exe - "WindowsInstaller3_1" folder (pre - requisite) -"DotNetFX35" folder (another pre-requisite) Now - when i run my SFX on win XP - it does run the "setup.exe", but after checking for the pre-requisites , it fails to run the MSI !!! Here is the log content : The following properties have been set: Property: [AdminUser] = true {boolean} Property: [ProcessorArchitecture] = Intel {string} Property: [VersionNT] = 5.1.3 {version} Running checks for package 'Windows Installer 3.1', phase BuildList The following properties have been set for package 'Windows Installer 3.1': Running checks for command 'WindowsInstaller3_1\WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe' Result of running operator 'VersionGreaterThanOrEqualTo' on property 'VersionMsi' and value '3.1': true Result of checks for command 'WindowsInstaller3_1\WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.exe' is 'Bypass' 'Windows Installer 3.1' RunCheck result: No Install Needed Running checks for package '.NET Framework 3.5', phase BuildList Reading value 'Install' of registry key 'HKLM\Software\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v3.5\1033' Read integer value 1 Setting value '1 {int}' for property 'DotNet35InstallSuccess' The following properties have been set for package '.NET Framework 3.5': Property: [DotNet35InstallSuccess] = 1 {int} Running checks for command 'DotNetFX35\dotNetFx35setup.exe' Result of running operator 'ValueEqualTo' on property 'DotNet35InstallSuccess' and value '1': true Result of checks for command 'DotNetFX35\dotNetFx35setup.exe' is 'Bypass' '.NET Framework 3.5' RunCheck result: No Install Needed Launching Application. Running command 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe' with arguments ' -I "C:\DOCUME~1\...\LOCALS~1\Temp\7zS909.tmp\MySetup.msi" ' Any ideas ?

    Hi, Well let me better explain : "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir% copy /b "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zSD_LZMA.sfx" + config.txt + %zipFileName% %outputFile% where : %zipFileName% = "MySetup.7z" %allFromOutputDir% = all of the items that currentlly exists in the output dir of the setup project. (bin\release\...) %outputFile% = "MySFX.exe" thats it... Did not zip only one file but the whole setup dir - since the setup my contain more then just the ".exe". It contains the pre- requisites folders (like the .net version and win intsller etc.). That is not the issue. I will try your format of command : copy /-Y /B

    Look, The setup alone does work on both OS... (XP and win 7). Only after creating SFX and using it - it does not work on win XP. And yes - the setup pre-requisite is to install .net frame work. Any other suggestions ? Thanks Iris

    Hi, Tried all the above - still same errors. I have a VS.net setup project - creating my setup.exe file. Then i have a post build event - trying to create the SFX like this : "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir% copy /b "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zS.sfx" + config.txt + %zipFileName% %outputFile% When running its product - it cause this error : "This installation package could not be opened..." or like this "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir% copy /b "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zSD_LZMA.sfx" + config.txt + %zipFileName% %outputFile% When running its product - it cause this error : "Could not read configuration or configuration not found". config file is saved in UTF-8 encoding. NOTE : both errors only happen on win XP . On win 7 - it works great!!! Any other suggestions ?
  9. 7z Self extracting

    Yep - the 'setup.exe' works just fine on both OS. Only when using the SFX - it fails on XP.

    Hi, Tried all that - did not work... Thanks Iris
  11. Hello all, I been trying to create a self extracting zip (SFX) to contain my installation folder. I am using 7z modules like "7zs.Sfx" or "7zSD_Lzma.sfx". I created a zip which after extraction run the "setup.exe" . this is the command lines in the batch file : "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir% (creating a 7z zip) copy /b "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zS.sfx" -y + MCTSFXConfig.txt + %zipFileName% %outputFile% (Creating self extracting zip) this is the config content : ;!@Install@!UTF-8! RunProgram="setup.exe" GUIMode="2" ;!@InstallEnd@! On my comuter which OC is win7 - it works good! But when i try to run it on WinXP pro x86 i get this error after extraction : "This installation package could not be opened..." So i tried different command for SFX : "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a %zipFileName% %allFromOutputDir% copy /b "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zSD_LZMA.sfx" + MCTSFXConfig.txt + %zipFileName% %outputFile% and when i am trying to run its out put - i get this error : "Could not read configuration or configuration not found". NOTE : it is the same configuration... Please help !
