    Step 1 - Setup your installation folder
    To make this easy create a folder c:\Install. This is where we will copy all the required files.

    Step 2 - 7Zip your installers
    Go to the folder that has your .msi and your setup.exe
    Select both the .msi and the setup.exe
    Right-Click and choose 7Zip --> "Add to Archive"
    Name your archive "Installer.7z" (or a name of your choice)
    Click Ok
    You should now have "Installer.7z".
    Copy this .7z file to your c:\Install directory

    Step 3 - Get the 7z-Extra sfx extension module
    Available in the link below

    Follow this link to download 7Zip + other necessary files

    Install 7zip and copy the other files to c:\Install

    Create a 7zip file with the name installer.7zip with your files and copy to c:\Install

    Copy the file "7zS.sfx" to c:\Install

    Copy config.txt to c:\Install or create your own

    Step 4 - Setup your config.txt
    Use Notepad for this but save the file in UTF-8 encoding.
    File > Save as > Encoding : UTF-8

    Using windows explorer go to c:\Install
    right-click and choose "New Text File" and name it config.txt
    right-click and choose "Edit with notepad".

    Enter something like this:

    Title="SOFTWARE v1.0.0.0"
    BeginPrompt="Do you want to install SOFTWARE v1.0.0.0?"
    Edit this replacing [SOFTWARE v1.0.0.0] with your product name. Notes on the parameters and options for the setup file are here

    After adding the lines save as config.txt in encoded in UTF-8

    You should now have a folder "c:\Install" with the following 3 files:


    Step 5 - Create the archive
    These instructions I found on the web but nowhere did it explain any of the 4 steps above.

    Open a cmd window, Window + R --> cmd --> press enter
    In the command window type the following

    cd \
    cd Install
    copy /b 7zS.sfx + config.txt + Installer.7z MyInstaller.exe
    Look in c:\Install and you will now see you have a MyInstaller.exe

    You are finished

    Run the installer
    Double click on MyInstaller.exe and it will prompt with your message. Click OK and the setup.exe will run.
