Whether a person is using a computer in the office or at home, there comes a time when they would want to extract some archived files. At times a person encounters problems and they are unable to extract the files probably because it was of a format that is not supported, or because the extracting software that they are using could not decompress the folder. It would be of great convenience to have an application that enables extraction of files in an easy way from any type of installation package, without having to memorize command line switches so as to enable unpacking. The Universal Extractor is one such software that has matured over time to become a solution that can handle the extraction of any type of archived file format.
The Universal Extractor is a tool that is designed to enable a person to not only decompress but to extract files from archives of any type and format. It does this by bundling together a number of useful backend features. It has an interface that is friendly and concise for use. It has essential utilities that consist of the File, Edit and Help menus. It provides the options of selecting files, setting the destination fields, Ok and Cancel buttons. One need only to open the targeted folder and the file would be extracted. It allows a person to extract exe and msi files from installers without even installing the software. This makes it possible for programs to become portable. The Extractor has the ability to extract files from one single location without use of command lines. The application is connected to the Windows Shell which helps to facilitate extraction of files by simply right clicking and selecting, so as to select the option that is relevant to the user.
The application does not need installation and it can be used to extract any archived file. However the application is not able to archive files.
The universal extractor does just what the name suggests; it extracts files from virtually any type of archive regardless of the source, file format or compression method. It doesn’t matter if it is an installation program, a zip file, or a Windows Installer Package. Even though the software is just a front end which uses other software, it is written in the powerful open source Autolt scripting language thus making it reliable.
