Universal Extractor 1.6 Released

After a really long release cycle, the final version of Universal Extractor 1.6 is ready to go. This version improves on the core functionality of UniExtract, most notably:

  • Full Vista support
  • Individual vs. global preferences (see ChangeLog for details)
  • new Preferences GUI
  • Code execution warnings

It also, of course, includes support for additional formats, as well as the latest versions of support binaries such as 7-Zip.

I know this has been a long time coming. I hope you find it was worth the wait.

Re: Universal Extractor 1.6 Released

Hi, I translated the Korean language. but the characters aren't shown properly. I guess the unmatched file encoding(UTF-8) that I've sent you caused this. It'll be great for Korean users that change the encoding type of lang file to ANSI for the new distribution.

Re: Universal Extractor 1.6 Released

This is a MUST HAVE program.
It is essential and wonderful...
GREAT work.!

Re: Universal Extractor 1.6 Released

Please... in next generation, "Universal Extractor" can repair it...

Re: Universal Extractor 1.6 Released

I can confirm this problem. It appears that Info-ZIP unzip (which is what UniExtract uses to extract from Zip files) does not properly support unicode. There isn't really anything I can do to workaround this, as the problem is with the backend utility.

It appears, however, that 7-Zip does properly support unicode, and can unzip this particular file without any trouble. You can try installing 7-Zip and using it for unicode Zip files, or you could use the version of 7-Zip included with UniExtract to extract the files instead of unzip. It has to be done manually, though:

"c:\Program Files\Universal Extractor\bin\7z.exe" x TestArchive.zip
