Self Extracting zip

I've used the examples to create a self extracting zip but is there something I need to do to extract the files automatically? I get a corrupt file message if I double click on the .exe that is created.

Hi guys,

i have the same problem.
zip file is created perfectly, but when clicking the created .exe it gives a warning : error reading archive.2

the code :

Set Zip = Server.CreateObject("SoftComplex.Zip")
zip.CompressMode = 9

'create temporary file name for output zip file
'response.write(Server.MapPath(".") & "<br>")
FileName = Zip.GetTempFileName(Server.MapPath(".") & "\clientfiles", session.SessionID , ".zip")

'response.write(filename & "<br>")

'create new zip file

'set root folder
Zip.RootDirectory = Server.MapPath(".") & "\clientfiles"

'add files to archive

FileList = GetStringsText(Zip.FileList, "; ")

'save zip file
FileCount = Zip.Save

Zip.SFXDialogTitle = "helpdesk files are being extracted"
zip.SFXEnableAutoRun = true
Zip.SFXEnableFilesCustomSelection = False
Zip.SFXForceDefaultOverwriteAction = true
Zip.SFXRunCommandAfterExtraction = "internal.exe"
Zip.SFXEnableFileListControl = false
zip.SFXEnableCancel = false
