I have tried several different methods including winzip command line and 7zip, but I cannot find a method that will let me create a self-extracting executable that will extract to a specific directory on the user's system when they run the exe. This can easily be done with the GUI on multiple zip softwares, but I cannot find one that can do it all from the command line. If you know of a software that works, can you also please provide a sample command?
