is a tool designed to assist you in building Windows self-extracting ZIP files, so WinZip is not necessary for decompression.
This type of program is highly recommended when you upload a file that you want to share with multiple users. The user interface of WinZip Self-Extractor consists of a wizard that carefully guides you to the desired results.
You can either create a standard self-extracting ZIP file, or a self-extracting ZIP file for software installation. The difference is that the first one is usually suggested for text, image, video files and others, while the latter option creates a more professional appearance when users install an application.
In the following steps, you can enable the program to span multiple removable disks (in case one disk will not fit one file), input the source file (ZIP or ZIPX), and enter text to be displayed in a message box and in its title once the user initiates the ZIP file.
In addition, you can specify a default “Unzip To” folder, a command that will be issued once the extraction finishes, text for your own “About” box message in the ZIP file, and your own icon, but you can also enable the software to default overwrite files without prompting, unzip automatically, select language (English or German), and more.

Self-extractors for software installation:

There is no practical limit on the length of the optional command issued by self-extracting Zip files after the unzip operation completes.
