Here may be found another very good version, though it is not very recent:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171930- ... rsion-165/
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ftqxpp8iyyaxt ... noinst.rar
It does not set off my AV at all, so it must not use AutoIt.

Here is the very last version of that one posted in that thread:

(The above is a re-upload of what the OP posted at sevenoptimus.zxq.net/uniextract17.exe in July '14 and he has not posted again since then, sadly.)

its not too good with extracting MSI files. many times UE fails but LessMS or JSMSIX both succeed fwiw ime.

It is good to see that I am not the only one who prefers not to use Gora's UE version.

If/when you do have the time & energy to update UE, would you please share it ??

Thanks.

@smallhagrid

I don't think it's hard to "Keeping UniExtract up to date" by yourself.
What kind of packers we have to deal with most of times? In 90% of cases it's InnoSetup, 7% NSIS and 3% MSI. So you can get UniExtract from Lupe and update InnoUnp, 7-Zip and you get fully functional unpacker.
What was updated from Lupe's version? 7-Zip, InnoUnp, UPX, UnRAR, UnZIP, Pea, triddefs.trd(every week), may be something else not so important. All about that you can find in this topic if you read all posts.
Actually you don't even need UniExtract. InnoSetup : InnoEx - http://fec.ct8.pl/blog/innoex/ (suggested by Userfriendly); NSIS : latest 7-Zip perfectly deals with them; MSI : lessmsi or jsMSIx

Yes, the whole idea behind taking it over would be to distribute an up-to-date, open, decompression tool.

It's a barrier to entry for folks new to the site. The idea behind taking over the project would be to simplify and ease that whole process.

In addition, UniExtract is also a dead-simple extract program that I'd like to recommend to non-software folks. Even in 2015, it still seems like no one outside of software people have any idea what RAR or 7z files are. A dead-simple opens-anything compression tool like an updated UniExtract might grab some people.

FTR, there's also an alternative OSS multi-platform Inno unpacker: innoextract (http://constexpr.org/innoextract/, currently at v1.4).

That is not my own link and I am not a member of the forum it was posted on either.
Perhaps you might wish to join there and post your request via the link above ??

Best Wishes.

I like the idea to keep an updated package of Universal Extractor, so I made an update of my release:
http://www.lupopensuite.com/db/universalextractor.htm

Code: Select all

1.6.1 Unofficial Revision 8 (19-04-2015):

- Updated 7-Zip to 9.38 beta
- Updated InnoUnp to 0.41
- Updated InstallExplorer to 0.9.2
- Updated TrID to 2.20
- Updated TrIDDefs to 5837 file types
- Updated UnRAR to 5.21
Now my doubt is: there are several versions/forks of this software, which version I may use and keep updated? Can you help me with this decision?

Currently I'm updating this official and out-dated release:
http://legroom.net/software/uniextract

I'm consider to move to this one:
http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171930- ... rsion-165/

But there is also the gora mod:
http://www.wincert.net/forum/topic/9785 ... -gora-mod/

Differences? Opinions?

ps: let me know if some components I updated do not work or if I forgot to update something, thanks!
