Universal Extractor is a program do to exactly what it says: extract files from any type of archive

Universal Extractor is a program do to exactly what it says: extract files from any type of archive, whether it's a simple zip file, an installation program, or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package. This is still a work in progress, but so far it's proven quite useful and I feel others can also benefit from it.

I should stress that Universal Extractor is not intended to be a general purpose archiving software. It will never replace WinRAR, 7-Zip, etc. What it will do is allow you to extract files from virtually any type of archive, regardless of source, compression method, etc.

The original motivation behind this project was that I wanted an easy, convenient way to extract files from installation packages, such as Inno Setup or Windows Installer packages, without pulling up a command line every time. In the process I got a little carried away and ended up throwing in support for every kind of archive format I possibly could find.

What's New in This Release:

В· Added support for environmental variables (eg., specify %temp% for debug dir)
В· Added support for XZ compressed files and txz/tlz archives via 7-Zip
В· Added support for Windows Installer merge modules (.msm) via MsiX
В· Added support for NBH files via NBHextract
В· Added translations for Armenian, Czeck, Persian (Farsi), Serbian, Swedish
В· Changed 7-Zip unpacking behavior; now attempts brute force extraction only after External PEiD scan; change due to aggressive .exe resource extraction in new versions
В· Changed Windows installer support (.msi, .msp) to use MsiX instead of msi2xml
В· Changed LZMA support to use 7-Zip for extraction
В· Changed FEAD support to use PEiD rather than TrID for detection
В· Changed following formats to call 7z by name (also see 7-Zip debug comment): bz2, chm, gz, tar, Z this is mostly for code cleanup; functionality should be the same
В· Fixed InstallShield 5.x regression in 1.6 preventing successful extraction
В· Fixed bug in extraction of non-TAR LZW compressed files
В· Fix...
