Making the exe's

I really didnt know how to search or what to search for so ill just ask. How do you make the self extracting paf.exe that all the portableapps come in? Is it like a program or something just really curious. Thanks.

7-Zip

They're 7-Zip self-extractors that have been resource hacked (you hack the SFX files). But just for now. An NSIS-based installer is replacing that shortly.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

He just uses the file

He just uses the file compression application 7-zip to create a self extracting archive, the "paf" in the name doesn't affect how the SFX works
