Please do not email me with any feature requests for this particular program. Most of the features available in this program are due to the modifications made to the default 7-ZIP SFX module by Oleg Scherbakov. Please contact the author if you have any feature requests. If you are good in C++ you can download the source code for the original 7-ZIP SFX module and implement the features yourself (since the 7-zip project is open-source).
If you have any suggestions for the GUI then you are welcome to email me or leave a comment on my blog.
This program uses Resource Hacker to change the SFX icon. There are some re-distribution restrictions with ResourceHacker so I can’t include it in this package. Download ResHack.zip from the following link, un-zip it and copy ResHacker.exe to the application folder.
This program is free for personal and commercial use and comes with absolutely no warranty. You use this program entirely at your own risk. You are allowed to redistribute this program as long as you don’t charge anything for it.
