  • To create self-extracting .exes:
    1. Click "Start," click "All Programs," click "WinRAR" and click "WinRAR."
    2. Browse to the folder containing the files or folders you want to archive in the WinRAR window.
    3. Select the files you want in the self-extracting .exe file by clicking them in the WinRAR window. Press and hold the "Ctrl" key as you click each file to select multiple files.
    4. Click the "Add" button on the toolbar to add the selected files to a new archive.
    5. Type a name for the self-extracting .exe file into the "Archive Name" box.
    6. Click the "Create SFX Archive" checkbox under "Archiving Options."
    7. Click "OK." WinRAR creates a self-extracting .exe file in the same directory as the files you added.
