PortableApps installer

I take it NSIS was used to create the installers but can anyone give me any pointers for wrapping up my own apps?

I tried the wizard in HM NSIS edit but that is a full blown installer rather than a simple zip extractor.

Or are the installers made in something else?

Thanks

The installers are made with

The installers are made with 7zip, the launchers are made with NSIS.

Thanks, for anyone wondering

Thanks, for anyone wondering the full process is...

7-zip the files as SFX with no compression
Resource hack to change the icon
UPX to re-pack them

Really? Well, I always have

Really? Well, I always have compression as a 7z SFX, and it works fine with ResHack. There should be no need to UPX the extractor, as it compresses the files contained only.

It is
  • UPX all possible files
  • Make installer
  • Make SFX with 7-Zip
  • ResHacker to change icon
  • Upload

In that order.
