Hi Folks, I've been very fond of portable software. Some of the portable programs are quite large, so to make the using fancier, I started to compress the portable applications into a WinRar SFX Archive which extracts the software to the tempdir, starts the software and afterward deletes the whole temp Dir. But it got cumbersome to manually extract the icon from the exe, make all necessary settings in the WinRar GUI - so I wrote this script. Nothing spectacular, but (in my eyes) very useful. After that, I added some other options to make it a little more versatile. Features:
Profiler - yet another backup script for Firefox and Thunderbird profiles It automatically detects the last recently used profile directories of Firefox and Thunderbird (installed versions, no portables). Clicking the Backup-Button creates a complete Backup of the found profiles with a timestamp. Restore deletes the according profile dir and extracts the content of the selected archive into the profile directory. Uses Winrar as compression tool, but feel free to change it to your needs Best regards Marc Profiler.au3
Hey there, im looking for a way to build something similar to winrar sfx archives. My idea is to somehow pack files into the exe (maybe fileinstall) and be able to extract each one to a specific folder if needed. Now here's the tricky part, i can't think of a way to update only part of the files like i do in winrar. And it would require some work with command line to be able to somehow get a list of the files packed in, and extract one for example. Does anyone know of any way to accomplish this? Also, fileinstall that can use variables would be nice. Best regards.
