Can Powershell studio be used to create a selfextracting exe?
I mean can an exe created from a ps1 have embedded in it a folder say f1 which contains files, so that when the created exe is installed on another machine, it will extracted the embedded folder f1 to a folder say "C:\Program files" to create the folder "C:\Program files\f1" as some other packaging tools like wise package studio or does?

You can create a folder when installing with an MSI and have it include the files and exe.

Is that what you mean?
