I cant seem to find any documentation on how to specify InstallPath as a parameter on the exe, is it possible?
If not, is there any alternative way?
Sets the extraction path. The extraction folder will not be deleted after the extraction.
If the 'InstallPath' value is not present in the config file or the path was deleted from the interactive extraction dialog, the archive will be extracted to a temporary folder. This temporary folder will be deleted after the extraction and execution of all commands.
Environment variables are allowed (with the exception of %%T and variables defined in 'SetEnvironment', if %%T is used in any of them). You MUST use DOUBLE backslashes in paths. For example:
Relative paths are allowed. The current folder is the one from which the program launching SFX archive was executed. For example,
creates a folder with the name of "test" in the folder from which the program launching SFX archive was executed. All files will be extracted to the "test" folder. On the other hand,
extracts the archive content to the folder from which the program launching SFX archive was executed. Also,
extracts the archive content to the folder where the SFX is located.
If all you need is to extract the archive content to a certain folder, you need to specify a value for 'InstallPath' in the config file. In this case you should not specify 'RunProgram' or 'ExecuteFile' in the config file. 'AutoInstall' or 'AutoInstallX' may be specified in the config file, but should not be invoked via the command line or with the [SHIFT] key. If you specify 'RunProgram' or 'ExecuteFile' or invoke 'AutoInstall' and 'AutoInstallX', the specified executable will be launched after the extraction.
