Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Jul 2016
  • 11MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 May 2010
  • Suggested by DigeratiPrime

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? No. Included libraries may write to the registry.
Unicode support: Yes
License: Main program: GPL, Included libraries: various, see note about commercial use
How to extract:
  1. Download the RAR "UniExtract Binary Archive" package and extract using PeaExtractor or a similar tool to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch UniExtract.exe

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.

Numanoid on 2014-11-01 14:32

This programme is in fact pretty much useless, there hasn't been one exe I have tried to extract over the last couple of months, where the so-called Universal Extractor has failed me :-(

Glint v1.28 (build 1044)

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

Glint monitor shows system activity by making visible system performance counters in local or remote Windows PC. The utility displays up to 200 indicators, each showing data from a single system performance counter. Recent counter values can be also shown as graphs. The monitor also displays the most active processes in system in descending CPU activity order. System counter names and their last values are shown when hovering mouse cursor over the indicators.

  • Added mouse tool tip to Active Processes indicator. The tool tip contains average CPU usage and amount of I/O data transfer for last 60 seconds (this interval is configurable)
  • Added option 'Show system task activity' into General Options settings dialog,
    that adds system processes, including Glint itself, to Active Processes tool tip
  • Added option 'Activity tracking time' into General Options settings dialog,
    that sets the activity time interval for Active Processes tool tip

I could not download the "exe" file. I got the Windows message that Glint stopped working. I'm using Windows Vista 64. Any suggestions? Thanks. Bob

Would be nice prog if it didnt crash everytime i change settings.

Technomancer on 2010-05-27 10:47

I'm on Windows7 Home Premium.
I love 'glint' i can keep an eye on what program or routine is (a)using my CPU time, (b)what's possibly reading/writing to my hard drive and (c)lots of other things that i don't really understand but are probably very useful to someone.

Top Marks for this one.

nPOP is a small and fast POP3 email client. When you first connect using nPOP, only the headers are downloaded. From the header list, you can select the emails you want to download for viewing.

For an improved version that is based on the original nPOP source code, check out nPOPuk.

npop is working with gmail.

drongo on 2010-04-30 14:13

nPOP has been a long-time favorite of mine for doing previews, quick replies, etc. Emails I want to archive I then download to another -- usually clunkier and nonportable -- client.

But actually I use the nPOPQ offshoot, available here: http://hp.vector.co.jp/authors/VA003011/ ... because I like the interface better. I hope that gets updated.

nPOPuk not being compatible with old email messages is kind of dealbreaker, nice as it sounds.

drongo on 2010-04-30 14:30

I spoke too soon above on nPOPuk not being compatible with old email boxes. It imports settings and old emails from nPOP just fine. And it does have some useful features lacking in nPOP.

However, I still like the nPOPQ interface better: There the left column has accounts on top and address book on bottom, while the right side has messages on top and message preview on the bottom.
