I created an SFX file (to unzip and launch a program directly) with Winrar which is supposed to be installed in a TEMP folder. I specified to launch "bin/myprogram.exe" after extraction.

When I launch the SFX, I can see that my program is launched but is closed after 0,5 sec. If I go manually to the TEMP folder and launch myself the .exe, verything works very well.

Someone already had the same problem?

My procedure :

I select all the files needed (bin, programData and .ico) New Archive, set to SFX mode. Under SFX Options button, in Advanced tab :

  • Setup : I write bin/myprogram.exe after extraction
  • Mode : Decompress in a tempory file

I tried to unzip in a specified folder or in programFile but nothing changed. Same situation

Since this is Windows, simply use bin\myprogram.exe instead.
