What is Universal Extractor?

Universal Extractor is a program that is designed to decompress and extract files from any type of archive or installer, such as ZIP or RAR files, and self-extracting EXE files, application installers, etc. It is able to support many varied file formats by operating a lot of backend utilities. The Universal Extractor is not intended to be a general purpose archiving program. It cannot create archives, and therefore, it can’t fully replace archives such as 7-Zip, or WINRAR. But it can allow the user to extract files from virtually any type of archive, regardless of source, file format, or compression method.

The purpose behind the Universal Extractor’s creation was to create an easy and convenient way to extract files from various different types of installation packages, without the need to remember deep command line switches, or track down separate utilities in order to handle the unpacking. Over time, it has evolved into a mature and capable archiving utility that a lot of people had found indispensable. As of version 1.4, the Universal Extractor supports internationalization.
