Question: "How do I extract files directly from an installer without going through the whole installation process?"
Answer: A program called Universal Extractor may be used to extract files directly from many different types of installer packages. This opens up the internals of a program without going through an (often non-portable) install process. Just move the installer into the window and choose OK.

Although many programs on the site work with the default program, for some newer programs, it may be necessary to manually update a component of the program: innoSetup
- Visit the innoup SourceForge download directory and choose the latest version (at the top of the list)
- Download the file innounp[version number].rar and extract using Universal Extractor (or other RAR-compatible program)
- Close the program and copy the resulting innoup.exe file to the \bin subfolder of Universal Extractor
