Without external application you can not accomplish this.

You can use the 7zip to compress as a SFX-archive. It's an open source project that you can use for any purposes (if i understand correct the license).

MsCreatoR says you can't do it without an external application but that isn't a problem. You can write a script to write a script and you can put the code in your script to call the compiler. For example, I have an AutoIt script which lets me choose the program, the customer and any extra files I want to include in an update. It also asks me, if it hasn't already been told, what the source file is that contains the version number and what the version variable name is. It then reads the latest source code of the relevant Delphi source file to find the version, modifies the Delphi source code for the updater program, creates a resource file for the delphi exe with all the extra files in it, compiles the Delphi exe, compresses it with upx and then uploads it to a website together with another file giving information on the latest update available. AutoIt can easily do all of these things.

To compile an AutoIt script look up "compile" in the help. You will see how to do it from the command line and this can be done from a script.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

@Martin

You can compile with AutoIt, but you use external application, UPX for example is external :D, but if you use your compiled script as interpretator for other temporary files (if i understand correctly), you can not make a stand-alone executable installation program, you will have to include your compiled script. And this what i meant when i said that «you can not accomplish this» :P.

I think what he is trying to say is, he wants to know how to build a program that will work as the exe compiler, so that he can build a program, using it.
