FreeExtractor is the easiest way to create self-extracting archives for Windows from existing ZIP files. It is an excellent open-source solution for packaging software programs and for distributing files to friends and colleagues over the Internet.

Features:

* User friendly

With a Windows 2000-style wizard-based user interface, end users will find FreeExtractor-created archives intuitive, fast and easy to use. Self-extractor authors follow a simple 4-step wizard which guides them through the process.

# Free and Open Source

FreeExtractor is free for all uses, and is released under a zLib-style license. It is unencumbered by restrictive licensing agreements. Developers have the added flexibility and freedom of modifying the source code to suit their application.

# Customizable

Authors have fine-grained control over archive settings and can tailor their self-extractors to suit their application. Authors can specify such options as an embedded URL, introduction text, shortcut creation and a custom icon.

With the optional command line utility, MakeSFX.exe, advanced authors can automate the creation of GUI self extractors via a batch file.

# Compatible

FreeExtractor runs on all 32-bit versions of Windows (Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP). Advanced end-users have the flexibility of extracting archive contents with third party programs like WinZip and WinRAR.

# Compact

As tested, FreeExtractor produces the smallest self-extracting archives of any competing product, by up to 10kb. In addition, the FreeExtractor Wizard (used to create self extracting archives) is only 40kb in size - the smallest SFX generator for Windows we are aware of.
