# archive_file Property

The name of the self-decrypting archive to create.

## Syntax

def get_archive_file() -> str: ...
def set_archive_file(value: str) -> None: ...
archive_file = property(get_archive_file, set_archive_file)

""

## Remarks

This property specifies the name of the archive to be written when CreateSDA is called. Any pre-existing archive file will be overwritten.

The filename may be specified with or without a path. Paths may be relative or absolute, and should be specified in the format native to the host operating system. The filename should be specified with the appropriate ".exe" extension. An extension will not automatically be appended by the class.

If the file cannot be written a trappable error will be generated.

Example (Creating a Self-Decrypting Archive)

class.ArchiveFile = "c:\test.exe"
class.RecurseSubdirectories = true
class.SourceDirectory = "c:\foo\"
class.CaptionText = "Testing SDA"
class.BannerText = "Press continue to decompress the archive."
class.CreateSDA()

class.ArchiveFile = "c:\test.exe"
class.SourceFile = "c:\foo\bar.dat"
class.CaptionText = "Testing SDA"
class.BannerText = "Press continue to decompress the archive."
class.CreateSDA()

Note: When creating a self-decrypting archive which exceeds 4 GB or more of uncompressed data or which contains more than 64K files, the class will create a 64-bit archive.
