2. Now choose what you want the package to do. Extract and run a program , just extract or create compressed files
3. Give the package a title
4. Choose whether you want user interaction (confirmation)
5. Choose whether to show license information from a file.
6. Select the files that should be added to the package
7. Choose how the extracting process should be visible
