Portable Universal Extractor as SFX.exe?

9 posts in this topic

Hi, I am new here! :)

I would ask you ...is it possible to make SFX (SelF eXtract) version of Portable Universal Extractor, to be easy for thouse people who don't have any Archiver on their PCs?

Because, it's a little bit difficult to unRAR Binary Archive of Universal Extractor on another PC (e.g. if it's not my computer), without installing an archiver or I should use 7-zip Portable?

Sorry for my poor english!

At least, make it ZIP, to be able to unpacked with Compressed (zipped) folder extraction wizard, integrated in Windows OS.

Why don't you just make a 7-Zip Self-Extractor? UE is, after all, Portable. Just make the Self-Extract force to a certain folder instead of the "Temp" folder, then just double-click UE...

edit - the Creator isn't (apparently) making too many updates lately and it's unlikely they'll bother with something so simple anyone can do.

That's not the point!

I know how to make it SFX and I've already made it with WinRAR.

Also I can with HaoZip, 7-zip, etc.

BUT, if I have to make it with another archiver, so why I should use Universal Extractor?

People need Portable Archiver when they don't have any! And when they don't have any, they can't unpack RAR-archives.

Why I should converted by my self from RAR to EXE ...and keep it in 4shared or e-mail acc? I think it's easier to download it from official site.

And as far as I can see, SFX-exe for OLD portable versions of Universal Extractor exist - HERE.

So it's not something new.

Was I not clear? It ain't gonna happen! Do it yourself and don't complain "why should I do it"! I SAID the Author is NOT MAKING ANY UPDATES!!!! PERIOD!

You may as well complain to Nuhi to Update nLite or vLite but... IT WON'T HAPPEN! (sheesh!)

(BTW, the link you gave IS THE AUTHOR'S WEBSITE!!! See anything new?)

gora has done a nice job keeping the program alive, updating the code a bit (with update checking and stuff) and he also updates the \bin & \lang files

I have a updated/repacked installer with gora updates, I know this is not what you are asking for but just install it, then zip the files for a somewhat portable app

1. nLite is not an archiver so your example is not correct.

2. As I wrote before, I've already made it SFX with WinRAR, but it's stupid to use one archiver to make another archiver/extractor SFX, isn't it?

3. It's stupid to exist Portable Archiver in RAR-extansion, because ppl use portable archiver when they don't have any!!! So how to unpack this RAR? With another archiver?

So, close this thread, cause you are too stupid to arguee with you!

Thank you!

There is another way, from HERE downloading old standalone version in .exe - extansion v1.0 ...and unpack RAR version - v1.61 - but it's still stupid.

Sorry to disappoint you, but Universal Extractor is not an Archiver any more than nLite is. It's strictly an Extractor, so your point is, well, the same as you just called me, Mr. Rude.

Your original post -

<snip>to make SFX (SelF eXtract) version of Portable Universal Extractor, to be easy for thouse people who don't have any Archiver<snip>
The link you pointed to ("Legroom") contains the Installer and the Standalone. The Contents of which have nothing whatsoever to do with Archiving (compressing/SFX-ing) anything. The Software is strictly for "Extracting" and nothing else.

BTW, 7-Zip is just fine for EXTRACTING the RAR, so WTH is your point? What DO you want? Someone to "guess" where the Portable should be "extracted" to? The Author has NO CLUE where you MIGHT want to "install" a Portable version... IT IS UP TO YOU!!! And I REPEAT, it WILL NOT HAPPEN!!!! Obviously, the Author decide that it was a pointless exercise/waste-of-energy to create a Standalone SFX when anyone could do it. Why don't you ask them (if you can find them). :w00t: Why not make it a CAB as well??? Make one for every type!!!

Calling people "stupid" won't get you too much help around here. I suggest you clean up your attitude if you want to stick around. ;)
