How do i create an auto software installation program?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

Currently im looking into creating an exe that behaves exactly like an update to a software.

There are couple of things that i'm not sure of.

1) How can i include my required folders and files in the program? (Do i have to zip it in order for self extraction within the .exe?)

2) Can the created .exe run on a PC that does not have AutoIt installed?

i seriously need help on this.

Comments and examples will be most welcomed. :whistle:

Try to use 7-Zip UDF and it will be easier, also your exe will run on the computer that don't have AutoIT installed.
