Dear all,
I created a sfx file with winrar to run silent and overwrite all files.
I want to control the path by a parameter which i pass to the sfx.exe.
So like, sfx.exe -path=c:\archive, so it will run and install files in this path,
How can I do that?
Thx

You can create the SFX in the method shown in the following link (you can specify the path on your own as well as the overwrite all switch)
