The new bitcoin wallet opens and installs as an .exe instead of a zip like the old bitcoin wallet. How was the switch from zip to exe done? Was it just some external file changing/binding the zip files together? If so how was this done? Or were there some actual changes to the code neccesary to change the download wallet from zip to exe? If so what code changes were made?

I don't know how it was done; however their are package installer programs (free ones) you can use to do this, or to just unpack files.. even winzip has a convert to .exe function

are you trying to do this to your own coin or application ?

I'm looking for the answer for 2 reasons. To see if I can create my own bitcoin wallet installer from the old client and also to do this change to my own wallet application. But would a simple zip programs convert to .exe merge all the files together properly and able to run? How would you recommend me to do this change from zip to exe properly?

I don't know what you are on about in the first post. Click the link:
https://bitcoin.org/bin/0.9.1/

There are both ZIP and exe files.

The zip file you can extract to any directory and run. It includes both the 32 and 64 bit binaries.

The exe files are an installer, when you run it, you will be given options to install the program in windows like you would for any other program. Many installers exist, such as NSIS and Installshield. Program authors use these to distribute their programs to non-technical users. An installer creates the start menu icons and uninstall options that you would expect from a program installed in Windows.

Yes I was basically asking if turning the zip file into an exe (installer) would need any changes to the coding of the coin, or could I go ahead and just manually merge the files?
