Description:

This application can perform following tasks:

– Create SFX archive (self-extractable) which gets extracted in the custom folder.
– Create SFX archive which executes a script(.vbs or .bat) after SFX archive extraction.

The script can be embedded in the archive together with custom type attachments like files or folders.

Note: The log file (WL_SFX.log) gets created in application’s folder.
