I want to distribute a self extracting executable that will extract to a hard coded directory with no user prompting. Right now, I'm using iexpress to package up my files, but I can't figure out how to automatically extract them without a dialog coming up asking the user to specify a destination folder.

Essentially, I want the automatic version of the /T option that happens when the user double clicks on the .exe file. How would I go about doing this? In a related matter, is there something I can do to an arbitrary executable to make it so that double clicking on it runs it with a command line switch (I know how to do this with shortcuts, but I don't know how to do this with the actual executable)?

According to the IExpress page, you can use an option in the .INF file to specify silent install mode.
