Information about the .sfx (sfx) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .sfx file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .sfx (sfx) file type.

.sfx
Self extracting archive script file.

The file is needed for self extracting archives. For RAR archives the file is typically named "default.sfx" whereas for ZIP archives it is "zip.sfx". 64 bit versions of those tools might use the files "default64.sfx" (for RAR) and "zip64.sfx" (for ZIP).

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .sfx files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .sfx. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
