Windows 7: WinRAR Console RAR SFX help.

WinRAR Console RAR SFX help.

Hey everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, so please forgive me if it's out of place. Couldn't think of any other place to ask this.

So I noticed that WinRAR has the choice of creating an SFX archive using WinCon, which is Console RAR SFX creator. I tried creating an SFX using that option, but I can't set any parameters for the .exe, even though I have them in the comments section. I set it to TempMode, but it still simply extracts the files into the folder the .exe is in. Even if I set the "path=%temp%", it doesn't work. It also doesn't run the "setup=****.cmd" parameter. How can I make those parameters work?

Thanks in advance!!

It seems that the console self-extracting module doesn't supports those options. When it's selected, the advanced options button simply gets disabled without a chance of even touching the install options. When using the graphical module is selected you can use all those options, though.

Oh, okay then.. It's kinda stupid though. Why wouldn't they allow to set parameters to console SFX module? :\

Anyway, thank you so much! :)

XP recovery console versus Vista/7's recovery console
It seems to me that XP's recovery console is somewhat better than the one that comes with Vista or 7, unless someone can point me in the right direction for finding further documentation on this topic. The main difference is the lack of ability to tinker with services (LISTSVC / ENABLE / DISABLE...
