# WinRAR SFX Commands

## Recommended Posts

ok, i was just speculating.

I made a request for the WinRAR developers to add shortcut commandline switch to create quick launch icons and I already got a responce thanking for the suggestion.. So maybe in a future version it might be possible. Who knows!

I want to use an SFX to create a file to install my rarreg.key to my Winrar folder thru' RunOnceEx. I can make the archive and do the syntax for the RunOnceEx ok - but I have 2 quick questions: when specifying the absolute path in the SFX settings can I use %systemdrive%\Program Files\WinRar (which will make the uA CD more versatile) or does it have to be X:\Program Files\WinRar ?? Also because there's a gap in Program Files does it all have to be enc in quotes?

Have used the winrar help file util but there's no mention of %systemdrive% usage. T.I.A.

u dont need to do any of that.

Seems a lot of work, Asta, unpacking and then repacking for the sake of a 1kb text file! (It would work tho s'pose).

How do I put an image into the comments section of an SFX archive, even change the Extract button? I know it was done before, example shown in attachment.

What other program do I might need to use where adding images and changing buttons can be optional since I couldn't find this in WinRAR? Thanks so far.

I checked the Ascii Table, but didnt find the "arrow". strange: Its not displayed correctly in the CodeTag of board@msfn, but copy&paste into winrar is working. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites ooo boy, been a while since the last post. still for those looking for the answer to that question: put on a line of its own ascii code 0x1A which is the SUB (Substitute) control character. Edit: About being able to use /s with winrar sfx, actualy you can't its passed along to the uninstall.exe file that said, simply change Setup=uninstall.exe /setup to Setup=uninstall.exe /setup /s voila no more popup for the configuration options and if you add Silent=1 you've got a totaly silent installer. . use winrar to export your settings.reg and add Setup=regedit.exe /s settings.reg and there you go a registered (assuming you archived rarreg.key) configured installation of winrar.

To extract the setup temporarly you just need to set "Temp Mode". The SFX extracts itself to TEMP, closes, setup is started from TEMP.

The same question

)))

Hello

I'm new on this website

And I liked this issue, and I was looking for a temporary long-

I'm not good at much English

So I have one question only you write it of end Iodhali

I have a file Winrar I've downloaded from the site and featured in this edition it again Mkirkp by file rarreg. .. So But surprisingly it's the same file Winrar your original company how they were to do that ...?)))

##### Share on other sites

Hello, need help with SFX options.

I have created 2 SFX (.exe) files. One extracts its contents to: C:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\My Documents\My Games

while the other one extracts its contents to: C:\Documents and Settings\%Username%\Local Settings\Application Data

I could use a .bat file to extract each, but I was hoping there is some way in which I could add both .exe files to a WinRAR self-extracting file so that all I have to do is run the one final .exe and both get extracted. Is there any way to actually do this with WinRAR?

The files are for the game Darksiders for PC because the game opens with a resolution that is not compatible with my TV when used as my monitor.

All I've been able to do is to get one of them to run. Under Setup is there anyway to add a Start /wait command.

So that it looks like:

Setup=Darksiders1.exe start/wait, Darksider2.exe

Having this type of a command would definitely help a lot of people like myself out.

Is there anyway I can accomplish this with winrar with out having to add a .bat file.. Like Setup=Darksiders.bat

Batch file:

echo off

.\Darksiders1.exe start \wait

.\Darksiders2.exe

exit

Thanks for Any Help.

Great help

Thank's !!!!!!
