WinRAR SFX "wait / timout" help

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I'm creating a basic WinRAR self-executable

This is my code:

Setup=STB.exe

Setup=SJ.exe

TempMode

Silent=1

Overwrite=1

Problem:

I need it to first start "STB.exe" and then wait about 10-12 seconds for the program to load, and then subsequently begin SJ.exe

Right now it runs them both at the same time.

Any way to do this?

Thank you for reading, =)

Just create a small Batch-file like this:

@echo off

start /wait STB.exe

start /wait SJ.exe

Save it as install.bat, add it to your SFX and use this as Setup.

Can we create SFX using Winrar, which can throw error based on system architecture?

Suppose, a program has to be installed in C:\Program Files (x86) and user changed the extraction path to C:\Program Files, I want that extraction in this case should throw error, as my program should not get installed in this directory ....C:\Program Files....

Can somebody help me in this?

Hm, i not really know. what you want.

Why can the users change the extraction-path?

If you want to extract your prog always to c:\program files - set this path as target in advanced sfx-settings in WinRAR and that's it.

But please remember: 'c:\program files (x86)' exists on win x64 machines only.

The better way to extract your program always to the right path is to use system-variables like %programfiles%.
