Can the Enhanced Unzip Files action extract from a compressed SFX file?

Can the Enhanced Unzip Files action extract from a compressed SFX file?

We are using Visual Build Pro 8.7.

When we attempt to use the "Enhanced Unzip" action to extract from a compressed SFX file, we get an error message "The zip file structure is invalid".

Can this problem be resolved in Visual Build Pro 8.7, or is a later version of Visual Build Pro needed?

The Enhanced Unzip Files action does not support extracting files from a self-extracting executable. You would need to run the executable to extract the files, or call another application that supports this (maybe 7-Zip?).
