Advantages: Reduction of file size
Winzip self extractor is now an invaluable piece of software for me. By building a multimedia presentation, and zipping it - i now have the ability to create a self extracting .exe file. This has numerous options, such as the ability to use my own icon, put up my own messages on screen to tell the recipient what is going on, and the ability to direct the download to a specific path i have set. Coupling this with a simple autorun.inf file, i am now able to send out a fully featured cd rom that starts itself. Very impressed.
