    Hi,

    Would your compression/zip components allow me to extract files from the common self-extracting formats (SFX?) used by Microsoft and others for setup.exe, dotnetfx.exe. I’m not sure what format these executables are in and how I would find out?

    Thanks, Simon

    If they are Zip-based self-extracting Zip files, yes our libraries will be able to extract and even update them.

    You can determine if they are Zip-based by just renaming the file to .ZIP and opening it with Winzip. If Winzip lists the contents with no errors, they are Zip-based. You may not even have to rename the file(s) from .EXE to .ZIP.
