How can I write a self-unpacking exe file to create an install of a portable version of an application?

Yeah, you can make a sef extracting exe file with winzip and winrar. I am not sure about 7zip though, as I don't use it..

Please do not discourage the asking of questions guys.

I generally discourage questions where it seems the questioner has not even bothered to try and figure it out themselves first. I get enough of that at work.

I agree, know will ever learn if they don't find out for themselves. Self taught individuals are the best taught individuals.
