Universal Extractor

GPL (free) – Jared Breland – Windows

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.

This application is not intended to be a general purpose archiving program.  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.

Universal Extractor is written in AutoIt, a powerful open source scripting language. Universal Extractor itself, however, is just a front-end that uses many other programs to do the dirty work.
