SFX- Remove file after extraction?

7 posts in this topic

Without using additional scripting (batch,vbs,etc), is it possible to add an additional command in an SFX that deletes a particular file after it runs via the setup parameter?

Basically, ive got a few sfx installers that import reg settings using "Setup=regedit /s settings.reg" and I want to have that file deleted once its been imported...

possible?

In "Run after extract" put : cmd /c del /f /q <path-to\settings.reg>

Not tested.. :D

Thx for the cmd... I was just trying 'del' and it wasnt working... but Im still left with a problem... how can I import the reg file now that im using the Setup cmd (run file after extraction) for this delete command? I tried placing it in the presetup (run before extraction), but it doesnt seem to work...

Place the reg file like next to the sfx then in run before extract:

regedit /S %Systemdrive%\Install\bla-bla.reg

that is what your cleanup.cmd does

so if u use sfx and unpack to temp folder

your cleanup should do that all at the same time.
