using the builtin SFX flavors supported by DotnetZip, you cannot produce a totally invisible SFX.  Either it is a winforms app or a console app. 

It's possible to code your own self-extractor flavor, which would display no user-interface at all.  You'd have to write some custom code.

I will make your request the subject of a feature request for the library.
