Self Extracting Archive

Home Page

Self extracting Archive - A self extracting archive is an archive where you do not need a program, such as the File Archiver, to extract the files contained within the archive. A self extracting archive typically has a small program contained within the archive that allows the files to be extracted.  A self extracting archive typically is an .EXE file. Using a self extracting archive is useful to send archived files to someone that does not have an archiving program. See definitions.
