I found the easiest way to do this is using Resource Hacker to change the manifest default from level="asInvoker" to 'requireAdministrator' as shown below:

lool well it took me 1 day to make a script

here is a part of it

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objSh.ShellExecute var1, var2 , "", "runas", 1
Set WshShell = Nothing

the var one is the file name and var 2 is -ai

what my script does after the tool extract it runs the script then recall the file with admin

but this way is much better and faster thx finally i can get over Winrar since now 7-zip can do all what i need

:hello: Hi everyone.

I have read this thread through but I still need some help.
Thank you all very much for your assistance so far.. :thumbup

I am a retired VB6 Programmer and am looking toward making the creation of an update sfx as automated as possible

The Theory is.... A piece of software that, after selecting updated files from a list (Mainly a few exe's and help files), one click will Create an archive, convert it to an SFX and upload it to my web site for users to download and install.

So far, with a vast amount of assistance from this thread (And lots of cussing), I have achieved my aim with one small problem... the archive carries the original path and installs to that directory.
I have tried to find the switch that will prevent this but up to now, I haven't found it.

The Method;
The VB6 application;-
  • Copies all files needed for the update, to a working folder, (C:\7-Zip\spUpdate\)
  • Creates a .BAT file to create the archive and SFX file
  • Runs the BAT File
  • Uploads the resulting SFX file to the WebSite

The BAT File
@ echo off
C:
cd \7-Zip
7za a ".\spUpdate\spUpdate.7z" @".\spUpdate\spZip.txt"
copy /b 7zsd.sfx + ".\spUpdate\spUpdateConfig.txt" + ".\spUpdate\spUpdate.7z" ".\spUpdate\spUpdate.exe

The File Name List ("C:\7-Zip\spUpdate\spZip.txt")
spUpdate\spDiary.exe
spUpdate\SP Utilities.exe
spUpdate\SPDIARY_TEMPLATE.MDB

The Config File ("C:\7Zip\spUpdate\spUpdateConfig.txt")
;!@Install@!UTF-8!
InstallPath="%PROGRAMFILES%\\spDiary"
ExtractTitle="Preparing the installation..."
;!@InstallEnd@!

There are probably faults with the above as I find all the different 7z and sfx versions a little confusing and have probably used conflicting versions of each. I am hoping someone can correct me on any mistakes I have made..
In saying this, It Actually works.

My problem is;-
On the Target Machine, although the sfx finds "C:\Program Files\spDiary\" as requested in the Config command: Installpath="%PROGRAMFILES%\\spDiary", it creates an additional "spUpdate\" folder and places the files in there.
ie: "C:\Program Files\spDiary\spUpdate\"

As a work around, I can use the root of one of the hard drives as a 'Work Folder' but don't like that idea.

Your assistance with this will be greatly appreciated.

~Mike~

cd to the folder and call 7zip from there:
@echo off
cd /d C:\7-Zip\spUpdate
..\7za a ".\spUpdate.7z" @".\spZip.txt"
copy /b ..\7zsd.sfx + ".\spUpdateConfig.txt" + ".\spUpdate.7z" ".\spUpdate.exe
Modify your file list accordingly.



Now I have a question of my own. How do I specify that the folder I want to decompress into should be an ntfs-compressed folder? That would cut down enormously on the disk thrashing, and with today's processors it's virtually zero overhead. Unfortunately, it seems like I can't do anything or call any files pre-decompression, short of making my own loader. Is this possible now, or can it be put into the sfx?

Modify your file list accordingly.

Thanks for the help foxyshadis.
I shall try this theory over Christmas (If I can sneak away from the family)

I have already learned something from you.... Its amazing... I have been writing .bat files since Dos 4.2 days and was not aware of the CD /D switch.. Saves an extra line of code :thumbup

Happy Christmas to you and all

Modules 1.4 alpha build 1659 (x86 & x64) are updated (February 12, 2010) and are accessible on Russian forum.

The translator is necessary for a translation of site and help (manual) to English language.

Hi all,

I have an issue with InstallPath in 7zip sfx config file.

In the script below, "Hello World" is well diplayed, but sfx is extracted to default tmp file instead of InstallPath.

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
BeginPrompt="Hello World"
InstallPath="BSY"
;!@InstallEnd@!

My system is Vista home x64.

Any idea ?

All works. The folder is created near to SFX archive. Where there is your SFX archive? Can be on CD, or OS (or the antivirus) does not allow to create a folder?

Your archive test.exe is in C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Temp\test.exe. After its start and pressing button "OK" in a dialog box folder C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Temp\BSY is created? If "yes", all is correct!

C:\Users\Me\AppData\Local\Temp\BSY isn't created, sfx is extracted to default 7zip temp directory (ex: 7zOD15B.tmp) instead of InstallPath.

You used modified modules? x64 or x86? Version modules?

Give the link to your test SFX archive.

I'm using 7zS.sfx, I probably made a confusion in what I've told and it's the modified module.

No, you use the standard module. Look properties of the module, at standard (which you use) so:

CompanyName : Igor Pavlov
FileDescription : 7z Setup SFX
FileVersion : 4.65
InternalName : 7zS.sfx
LegalCopyright : Copyright © 1999-2009 Igor Pavlov
OriginalFilename : 7zS.sfx.exe
ProductName : 7-Zip
ProductVersion : 4.65

And at the modified module so:

CompanyName : Oleg N. Scherbakov
FileDescription : 7z Setup SFX (x86)
FileVersion : 1.4.0.1672
InternalName : 7ZSfxMod
LegalCopyright : Copyright © 2005-2010 Oleg N. Scherbakov
OriginalFilename : 7ZSfxMod_x86.exe
PrivateBuild : February 25, 2010
ProductName : 7-Zip SFX
ProductVersion : 1.4.0.1672

Site of the modified module:http://7zsfx.info
New versions of the modified module:http://7zsfx.info/<s...>/download.html
