Purpose:

Panasonic bundles by default, include all Mandatory and Recommended installations. They also include optional installations, which take up disk space, even when compressed. This tutorial will display how to change a packaged Bundle and re-package it back up for distribution.

Procedure:

  1. Download the desired bundle from the following site: http://goo.gl/EYtVm5
    1. Download the large .EXE files and download by clicking directly on the Filename.

  2. Extract the large .EXE into a sub-folder using the latest version of 7-Zip (currently 9.20): http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

    1. Note: Be careful deleting the Mandatory and Recommended installs, as some of them are vital for the unit to function properly.
  3. Once extracted, delete the undesired .ZIP files from the sub-folder and rename the root folder and sub-folder (contains the .ZIP files) to notate the change.
    1. Note: The name should not contain any spaces as well as any under-scores.

  4. Download the “7Zip_SFX_Creator.zip” package from panaconsulting:

  5. Extract the “7Zip_SFX_Creator.zip” archive into a sub-folder.

  6. Drag the updated Bundle’s root folder on top of the “7Zip_SFX_Creator\BuildExe.bat” file. This will auto-generate an updated large .EXE file in the “7Zip_SFX_Creator\” folder.
