How to edit the appearance of a FreeArc sfx archive?

Hello friends.

I want to know how I can change the appearance of a sfx archive of FreeArc? , I want that when you unzip the exe file looks like this:



I've tried with and ResourseTuner ResourseHacker and it was not possible to edit compressed files because they can not.

Use th modificable sfx attached.

And replace the bitmap images with which you want

use resourse hacker to open the sfx archive

in Bitmap tab you can replace the image , (bmp)
in Dialog tab , you can resize the extraction window

it is possible , call frearc sfx in inno setup whit autoit , no dlls , no codes , only 1 sfx archive , and , 1 auto ok button created with AutoIt

is easy , in inno setup at the final of installation calls the auto ok , the auto ok calls the freaarc sfx

with this method is executed sfx file with AutoIt , in inno setup calls the auto ok , like calls directx for example

I want to learn how to call a FreeArc file with Inno Setup - as peterf conversions but I had to try alternative methods

(Translated by pakrat2k2)

Look I have the commands needed to make the file executable FreeArc sfx, make unattended installation.

You should only add this:

Code:
Filename: {src}\DATA.exe; Parameters: "-x -d""{app}"" -y -s2";
where:

Data = sfx is your executable file prepared by the FreeArc
{app} = Destination Directory. With a *slag(backslash) can be placed more subdirectories

These parameters are necessary for the installation is deatenida. regards

found this on RU forum too: might help if there are more then 1 freearc files

Code:
#define Archives "{src}\1.arc;DestDir:{app}\;Disk:1"
#define Archives Archives + "|" + "{src}\2.arc;DestDir:{app};Disk:2"
#define Archives Archives + "|" + "{src}\3.arc;DestDir:{app};Disk:3"
#define Archives Archives + "|" + "{src}\4.arc;DestDir:{app};Disk:4"

what I posted #8, those can go i top section of script before [FILES], what DN8 posted #6 that can go in [FILES] section, but not necessary to be there. It can go anywhere.

Freearc In Inno More Easier than never




Explaining the tutorial

1 - Do not put your arc sfx in Files & Dirs dont!

2 - Go to Install Run Section and

3 - Create New Item and put these commands ( like in the image )

{src}\DATA.exe
-x -d"{app}" -y -s2


To create subfolders


example ( thanks to pakrat2k2 )

-x -d"{app}"\BmGame\Movies -y -s2



PD : DATA . exe is an example (name of your choice.exe)

4 - Your ARC SFX archive must be in the Output folder of your project Inno Setup

At the end of the installation runs automatically the decompression of The Sfx

if you want subdirectories then change to this

Filename: {src}\DATA.exe; Parameters: "-x -d""{app}\xyz\"" -y -s2";

where \xyz\ is the subfolder

I get an error decompression with this line

But the subfolders problems can be solved compressing in your sfx multiple folders at the root folder of the game
