    Guys I know you can help me.Just say me how to extract files from self extracting archives and setup files(.exe format) by using compression utilities such as winzip,winace..etc.I tried my level best with Winace(version 2.6) archiver and all went in vain.One thing for sure,I know that when run they extract themselves to some Temp folder but I can't figure it out.Please guys help me,as i am the new kid on the block.

    Install winRAR. To extract sfx right click them and u will find options like extract here, extract to folder, extract files
    You can use any of these options to extract the sfx contents.

    You can always change that. When you double click on a self extracting archive, click on 'Browse' beside the 'Destination folder' text box and change the location where you want the archive to be extracted to.
