Self-extracting files are one of the easiest ways to transmit large amounts of data, especially software. The ubiquitous .exe file extension denotes a compressed file that can be extracted with no outside applications, making it easy to download and install programs. JIJI Self Extractor is a simple program that allows users to create self-extracting files, a useful feature for software developers and anyone who routinely needs to package large amounts of data in a manageable format.

The program's interface is plain but intuitive, with an easy-to-navigate wizard-style design. Users first select the files they want to include in the self-extracting file. If any compressed files--ZIP files, for example--are included, they will automatically decompress when the self-extracting file is run, but users can disable this if needed. Users then choose the desired file name and destination for the new file, optionally select an icon, and fill in a title and message for an optional pop-up to be displayed during extraction. The self-extracting file can be password protected if desired, and users can select whether the extracted files are stored in the end-user's temporary folder, default folder relative to the file, or a folder of the end-user's choosing. Users can also select specific files, such as setup files, to be run automatically upon extraction. Overall, we found the program quite easy to use, and users who are already familiar with creating .exe files should find it to be a piece of cake. An HTML Help file provides some guidance, although it could stand to be more detailed and better written.

JIJI Self Extractor runs without installation and can simply be deleted when no longer needed. We recommend this program to all users.
