How to make a Firefox installer with 7zip?

12 posts in this topic

I am using Setup Factory 7 to make the installer but the compression ratio is more than 50%, so I am trying to use 7Zip with Setup Factory 7

I am thinking of running an exe file of the 7zipped-firefox and extract to TEMP, then use Setup Factory to copy the folder of Firefox to Program files.

But now I can't make the exe file of 7zipped-firefox auto extract, it always show dialog box of where it will extract to. how to solve this?

And, any better installer builder than setup factory?

keytotime posted a nice tutorial on how to make one at Ryan's forum.

I do something similar, but do everything in a command line.

If you aren't making any changes to the installer, then use the default one, as that is already 7zip compressed.

I have a question that is somehow related to this topic.

I am trying to edit the config.ini that is inside the original install file of Firefox.

I know that it is a 7zip sfx file.

I can see inside the pack with Winrar and 7zip, but they don't let me edit or repleace the files inside them.

I thought I could unpack the original file, edit the config.ini and then repack again with 7zip, but I don't know what is the code of the original sfx pack.

Can someone help, please?

I just want to make a self-extracting file. That file will extract silently to TEMP and keeps everthing there. (now afer extracting, it auto-deleted)

Can I set the folder in TEMP where self-extracting should extract to?

My best advice for you would be to read the help file, and play around with it. Thats how you will learn it, and you should be able to answer your own questions.
