and then MAKE SURE YOU CLICK CREATE SFX ARCHIVE UNDER ARCHIVE OPTIONS
Then name it whatever you want and click browse to save it where you want to.

Step 2: Advanced Tab

then click the advanced tab

in the path to extract to section you can eeither type the complete directory such as
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\My Pictures
or choose the other options.
