Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Nov 2014

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.

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 :-(

PassMark OSFMount v1.5.1015

Checker on 14 Mar 2014

OSFMount has a variety of virtual drive tools. The program allows mounting a local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks, and mounting CD or DVD images in the absence or to supplement/improve on an existing drive. Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VDMK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC), and more.

The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, making them work with games that require the program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes, and some database applications.

Command line tools are also included.

Note: The developer indicates "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."

So I needed to extract some audio from a .BIN file. OSFMount couldn't detect the image properly. What worked for me was CDmage. It's also stealth ;)

Midas on 2014-05-12 16:06

@freakazoid: CDmage is ancient, I'm surprised someone even uses it anymore... :)

skall on 2015-02-23 10:21

whenever i try to mount an image (different formats), the message 'wrong parameter' appears and the new drive is not selectable? i am using the 64bit version and have admin rights.

any hints what might cause this?

i might be wrong, but it seems like this is the only up to date portable virtual cdrom software for win8.1?

This software is not stealth, it creates CrystalDiskMark30.ini in the user's folder.

portafreeuser on 2010-12-27 04:09

it's a nice idea but i've heard people say that benchmarks like this are worthless because disk caching. unless the temp files are bigger than the caches, the results are bogus.

WIkiQUsK on 2012-11-25 14:57

Just tested it and it seems to be writing the settings file to the app folder correctly at this point. I think you can change this to stealth now.

@hamasaki, To save notes to DropBox , use the Export function, and Export to your Dropbox location.

Cornflower on 2015-01-02 21:37

Printing! I don't know where I saw it, but to Print from Mempad, Export (Page, Node, or Structure), then in the dialogue box, tick "Open the file" and "with program:" and type in notepad.exe /p (or as I do, ted.exe /p -- see ted.exe at http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=858)

hamasaki on 2015-05-01 15:25

@Cornflower, I`ve tried that but when you save in MemPad it doesn`t update the dropbox file, you have to export it again. No good.
