Default a little question...

Hi, just a little question.
Is it possible to merge files together into one file without it just being a zipped folder. So I could make one file with 1 ore more hidden files inside it.

You could Tar the files together using a program like ultimate zip (which reads Tar files under windows) they are technically not zipped!...

Alternativly you could use the object packager in work to add other files in, though I'm not sure if this actually adds a file into a file of just links to it.

Why can it not be a zip file? It would be the easiest idea. WinRAR can make .rar files - but again its a zip.

What using WinZip to make a self-extracting .exe - that would be 2 files and not a zip.
