Born_inSANE you probably messed up with archives. Make some small archive for testing and try to do it correct way.
Remember 1: compress srep file directly to cab not arc (and changing its extension to cab)
Remember 2: cab containing game files (also srep) is freearc archive, cab containing setup files (backgrounds, music) is winrar/7-zip/winzip archive (zip compressed with deflate algorithm and renamed to cab)

Here is the link for .iss and .ini files I used.
Link:http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?4a26a3ddd7sz6ht.
Please check it.

Now I have got the difference,but can you help me out in compressing srep directly to cab.Because I got error while directly compressing srep to cab.

Damn Born_inSANE! Sorry man, but you're not nb, you're NB.

First. Use built-in attachement systen instead of mediafire.

Second. In your setup.ini
Code:
FreeArcFile1={src}\Data1.cab;C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft:{app};Disk:1;PrecSrep:1
should be
Code:
FreeArcFile1={src}\Data1.cab;DestDir:{app};Disk:1;PrecSrep:1
What the hell for you changed DestDir to C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft? DestDir is a variable and {app} is its value! Moreover, {app} means the path defined during installation.
So if someone want to install your Far Cry 2 to E:\Any_folder\Another_folder and type it during installation, then {app} means E:\Any_folder\Another_folder and Data1.cab will be extracted to E:\Any_folder\Another_folder
If Data1.cab should be extracted to any subfolder of installation path, i.e. Movies, then
Code:
FreeArcFile1={src}\Data1.cab;DestDir:{app}\Movies;Disk:1;PrecSrep:1
will extract content of Data1.cab to E:\Any_folder\Another_folder\Movies

Third.

yeah i made a bat file for both srep and precomp thx to Bamse for the help on that.i just used that version of precomp and srep that i uploaded on mafia 2 to get it down to single dvd5 worked like a dream.the bat files are for max compression.drag the data.arc on the precomp.bat should work perfectly.

hi revo.i remeber what cause that to crash its certain files in the structure that cause precomp to stop responding.Bamse did fill me in on this.if u look in the precomp bat file there -v aka verbose mode and pause when this crashes instead of the app closing down it will pause and at that point in cmd windows u will see where it crashed.
it should read some like this " found position at #########(whole bunch of numbers)

make a note of those numbers and add it to the precomp.bat
eg: precomp042 -intense -v -c- -i#######(the numbers u made a note off) %1
pause


if it crashes again u have to add those numbers also into the bat f file just like i mentioned above bit painfull but thats the way around it.

Hi

I have a little problem with my setup.

Everytime when the install sequence is finished (or Data3.pcf is unpacked, im not sure), i got this error



Quote:
[ExtractSettings]
FreeArcFile1={src}\Data1.cab;DestDir:{app};Disk:1
FreeArcFile2={src}\Data2.cab;DestDir:{app}\Data;Di sk:1
FreeArcFile3={src}\Data3.cab;DestDir:{app}\Data;Di sk:1;PrecSrep:1
For Data3.cab i made the following steps

Quote:
-4 Files archived in Data3.arc with no compression (just save with freearc)
-Used precomp 038 to pre-compress Data3.arc to Data3.pcf
-Then srep to compress the pcf file to srep file
-After this i used freearc to compress the srep file (-mx -ld800m)
I have also used the newest versions of precomp/srep but the same problem.

Any solutions ?

in the setup.ini you need to specify which version of precomp you used.

[InstallOptions]
ApplicationName=Gmename
Publisher=publisher name
MyExecutableName=game.exe
MyExecutablePath=
SaveGameFolder=
GameSize=9646
Lang=de,en,es,fr,it,pl,pr,ru
LangUI=0
PrecompVer=038
