How to create a self extracting archive that will extract the files exactly were the .exe file is located?

Tag: windows , archive Author: dragonbasket Date: 2014-04-02

I need to deploy several files on an entire fleet of laptops, and I'd rather have all files in a self extracting archive. The problem is that the path for extraction may differ form machine to machine, so I would require an archive that does not prompt the user for anything and extracts all files to the same folder that it was ran from.

Hopefully there is some software which can perform this, maybe a parameter / command line switch in 7zip that I missed?

Thank you for your help, Bogdan
