    Good morning

    For years, I delight in creating small self-extracting files for free programs, and I would like to understand why what I can do normally in W7 I no longer possible in W10.
    If the example is copied in "C:\Program Files (x86)" folder full of JDowloader complete executable.
    If this is done manually, everything works perfectly. If I create a self-extracting file with WinRAR, when I launch the executable returns an error to some files in it.
    The same self-extracting file installed on W7 works without problems, what I think is that in W10 is not allowed under the "Program Files (x86)" and the like, the automatic extraction of some files.
    Perhaps because they changed the management in terms of safety.
    Is there any command or script to insert different procedure?

    Sincerely thank you
