My 7-Zip Installers Don't Work!

I've followed the guide located here very closely. I am starting out easy with a firefox installation. I have firefox.exe inside firefox.7z.

My config.txt:

;!@Install@!UTF-8!
RunProgram="Firefox.exe -ms"
;!@InstallEnd@!

When I run the command prompt command, it only says "1 file copied", so maybe the problem is here:

But, when I run the final program, it still looks for setup.exe!

If I change the firefox.exe inside the 7z archive to setup.exe, it launches. But this isn't what I want. Why won't it launch what I tell it to in config.txt?

Try to use 7zS.sfx file just once.

After you build an installer delete the 7zs.sfx file which you used.

When you want to build another installer use a fresh copy of that file (keep a clean copy of the file somewhere on your HDD).

Edit: Try 7zSD.sfx (1.2 Build 861) module from here: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=101552

Is powerfull than the original.

Thanks! Using that new SFX, it worked!
