Just saw this one:
Quote:
Decompress 7z, cab, rar, tar, zip files with ease
User friendly extractor for compressed archives
...
PeaExtractor is a spin-off from PeaZip free archiver project, and it is built on same proven Open Source components, providing support for extraction of 150+ archive types: 7Z, ACE, BZ2, CAB, GZ, ISO, RAR, TAR, ZIP format and many more.

Note: haven't tested it yet, but it should be portable, as it is made by Giorgio Tani, author of PeaZip.

It's almost portable, and stealth not even once! :)


Extractnow is great. Highly configurable yet simple - appeals to both basic and advanced users. PeaExtractor is more basic but also good.

PeaExtractor

Great suggestion - it checks off almost all the ideal features I listed and totally caught a feature I didn't even think of: search.  So no matter WHERE your boss accidentally saved that file, he can still track it down and open it.  I also like how the password entry was handled. It covers Bzip2, arc, zipx, and many more ... I probably could not have asked for better format support.

It even worked like Universal Extractor on at least one program I used: MP3Tag (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1137) but doesn't include the Innoup libraries so it couldn't function as a replacement for that program.


Wishlist

  • By default it should suggest a place that is a folder with the same name.  So for example, archive.zip should suggest extraction to whatever the zip file directory \archive.  In my testing, I got a whole bunch of files spread out over my desktop, which I can see confusing people or causing problems.

    Specular already hit on this issue:
    Specular wrote:
    I always hated extracting things only to see a neat folder suddenly filled with various extracted files.


  • Password entry is grayed out if the archive has no password requirement.  I say this because it's presence means some users are going to immediately ask the person who sent them something for the password.

  • Have the directory contents look like this:

    Code:
    PeaExtractor.exe
    \Other


    Users should have ZERO question about what they're supposed to run.  Right now there's pea.exe and a ton of other files to throw off beginners.

  • Some kind of progress/time remaining analysis.

Edit: additional wishlist item:

  • Ability to type a location into the extract box rather than having a static box until you click the "..." button to browse locations.

I downloaded the portable version from Softpedia. States it's freeware; it doesn't mention anything about it being ad supported here.

PeaExtractor is a simple free extractor for 7z, cab, iso, rar, tar, zip, zipx file, over 150 archive formats are supported.
Single purpose utility for unpacking of compressed files, PeaExtractor aims to maximum ease of use with a minimal, user friendly, GUI departing from file manager -like design paradigm of archive managers like WinRar, WinZip, 7-Zip or PeaZip.
A simple wizard focused on file decompression guides the user toward the fastest and simplest completition of the task.

Thank's for adding, Baas!
Didn't want to do it myself yet, as this is a new born app and there might still be some unpolished features.
But now that it's online...voted.

Oh there are a few minor issues with the GUI that need to be ironed out but PeaExtractor is ready for TPFC database :)

Here is an example:

Ah, I didn't see that: a lot of portable software gets a pass on adware (thankfully).
