Customizing WinRAR SFX for customized installers
Posted 23 January 2005 - 05:08 AM
Am having a little problem that i hope you may be able to help me with.
After following the steps i can't see an icon even when i change the whatever.sfx to whatever.exe... if i open the updated whatever.sfx file again in reshack and try to view the icon group i get the following error message:
this file has a non-standard resource layout...
it probably has been compressed with and "EXE Compressor"
I have not yet compressed the files.
Anyone got any ideas? I am using version 220.127.116.11 of reshack

One thing I notice when implementing this that you don't mention is that I had to rename the new SFX module to something that contained the word Default. For example, when I was building an SFX module for Firefox, the module worked fine when called Default1.SFX, but failed consistantly when renamed to Firefox.SFX. I was finally able to get around it by calling the finished module FirefoxDefault.SFX.
The problem duplicated itself with the Thunderbird module, until I likewise renamed it to ThunderbirdDefault.SFX.
Anyone else experience any issues similar to this?

@Cartoonite I know with the command line tool it doesn't matter. Sorry that is all I tested it with before I switched over to 7z.

True. But I still prefer using customized sfx modules because they look better.
Dude, I never had that problem. As far as I know, you can call it whatever you want as long as it has a .SFX extension. I call mine "totoymola.sfx" and I'm using it without any problem.

Hmm. I wonder if it is related to the version I am using. What version is everyone else using? I am using 3.41.
