Universal Extractor Portable

Universal Extractor 2 is the most advanced unofficial modification around, aiming at the inclusion of many wanted features, improvement of current ones, ongoing support and a central open-source distribution. UniExtract 2 started as a simple modification disabling the always-on-top status box and ended with the addition of dozens of extractors to expand the range of supported file types. New – and unique amongst the available modifications – features like a scan-only mode to identify unknown file types using multiple scanning applications, the batch mode, or the extraction of audio and video tracks from multimedia files make it stand out against these.

Core improvements:

  • Batch mode
  • Silent mode, not showing any prompts
  • Scan only mode to determine file types without extracting
  • Integrated updater
  • 100+ new supported file types
  • Audio and video extraction for multimedia files
  • Cascading context menu
  • Support for password list for common archives
  • Improved optional status box with progress indicator
  • New detection methods + more detailed output and error messages
  • Support for some extractors not shipping with UniExtract as plugins
  • Resource usage/speed improvements, lots of fixes
  • First start assistant instead of installer
  • Full functionality available in no-install version
  • Auto-using 64 bit versions of extractors if supported by OS

  • Added statistics GUI
  • Added status box when moving/copying unicode files to temp directory
  • Added timeout to some scan functions to prevent delays caused by unresponsive helper binaries
  • Added extraction to last used directory command line option and context menu
  • Changed forcing a single instance and auto-adding is now disabled if the extraction
  • is already finished and only the result message box is opened
  • Changed unicode path logic: file is now copied instead of moved if it is on a different
  • drive than the temp directory
  • Changed status box design
  • Fixed multiple error messages being displayed on failed update check
  • Fixed update message display problem
  • Fixed possible problems when entering relative paths in main GUI input fields
  • Fixed extraction not working when file directory contains unicode characters and
  • there is not enough free space on the drive containing the temp folder
  • Fixed free space check not taking unicode file moving into account
  • Fixed .sit extraction
  • Fixed crash when trying to extract wise installers
  • Fixed swf extraction ignoring some images and sounds
  • Updated language files for Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Italian
  • Removed DMGExtractor and replaced it with 7z
  • Updated 7zip to 16.04
  • Updated ExeInfoPE to
  • Updated fsbext to 0.3.5
  • Updated innounp to 0.46
  • Updated QuickBMS to 0.7.5
  • Updated ttarchext to 0.2.10

Renamed and recoded, now this and every new version will install to UniExtract2Portable making it easier to upgrade.

Rev1: Fixed wanting to update ffmpeg


  1. Could you maybe, when the next update comes out for the
    Bioruebe build, change the folder it gets installed in to something better so the files can be updated properly? I've Changed mine to read "UniExtractBioruebePortable" so I could have separate builds installed when I was deciding which I wanted to use more regularly. Then use the appinfo.ini to display "Name=Universal Extractor (Bioruebe) Portable" and display the specific version number "2.0 beta #"

  2. Dangerous File Blocked
    The file you attempted to download was determined to be dangerous. For your protection, MediaFire does not enable distribution of dangerous files.

  3. what did the file size for 4b_Rev2 increase so much? Previous 4b release (CRC 90e7914d) was only 21MB while Rev2 is 88MB.

    1. It has files added to extract even more types of files.

  4. Invalid or Deleted File. (Message from MediaFire.)
    Please update the link.

  5. Invalid or Deleted File.... NO GOOD!
