Creating Self-Extracting Archive

There are tree ways how to create self-extracting archive:

From ZIP plugin menu

If you have already created a ZIP archive, you can convert it to self-extracting archive by command Create Self-Extracting Archive from menu Plugins/ZIP.

Specifying an option in Create New Archive dialog

When you pack files to a new archive (using Pack command from menu Files), ZIP plugin displays Create New Archive dialog.
