Surfer, can you please provide a little more detail? I've never seen that error message before with any application. I have absolutely no idea what could cause it. Can you please give me an example that I can follow to duplicate it?
NSIS support is already included, though it could still be considered expiremental as there are certain types of NSIS installers that it still cannot extract.
I believe I've already looked at KGB and determined that it couldn't be supported. I don't remember the details, though, so I'll add it to my list to check again.
ggf31416 had requested support for UHARC archives a few posts ago. I'll look into it as well.

Sorry , I can not duplicate this error (it was not from UniExtractor)
I have idea , how UniExtractor will be support more install format's :
Install Shield 3 unpacker : I upload it to : http://up-file.com/download/c37904282852/I...00.062.zip.html
Other greatest tool's ( but they works only in TotalCommander ):
http://wincmd.ru/files/msi-pluswcx.zip (can unpack MSI more correctly , than UniExtractor)
http://www.totalcmd....htUnp_0.1.1.zip (MHT unpacker)
http://wincmd.ru/fil...lorer_0.9.1.zip (COOL stuff , can unpack script's and files from: Wise , Vise , Inno Setup , Gentee Installer , InstallShield , NullSoft Installer (ver>=1.1o) , SetupFactory , Eschalon , Msi)
Who have any ideas about working without TotalCommander ?
And anybody have ideas about "CreateInstall" unpacking ?

But first of all I want to thank you for this great tool!
But now I have a problem. Every time I extract an archive (it doesn't matter which type, or how I produced the archive) I get this message:
The uniextract.txt says:
Processing archive: J:\JRE5.CAB
Everything is Ok
And everything was extracted to c:\ and not to the chosen destination.
This Problem did occure since reinstalled version 1.2.1, after the installation of the newest Beta of Winrar killed the Explorer context menu integration.

Surfer, I cannot download Install Shield 3 unpacker from the link you provided. Can you please verify?
As for the other suggestions, as you mentioned, they only work with TotalCommander. If someone can figure out how to make them work indepently of TotalCommander then I'd love to integrate them into UniExtract, but so far I haven't had any luck doing that myself.
I'm not familiar with it, but if you can figure out how to extract files from any of their installers from the command line, please let me know and I'll be happy to add support.
ma$e, I don't know what's wrong off hand. I'd recommend uninstalling UniExtract completely (to remove all existing UniExtract registry keys), rebooting (to force Windows to forget about any associations), then installing it again. If that still doesn't work, let me know.
MisterH, that's pretty generic filetype. It could've been compressed using a variety of different options. The way I handle those now is I have 7zip and InfoZip both try to list the contents of the file; if either can do this, then it can extract the contents as well. If they both fail, then it displays the error message that you're seeing.
Now, it's possible that there may be some other way to extract the files, but I'd need to do some specific testing on that file. If you send me a link to download it, I'll check it out and see if I can find any way to do it.
Boomer, the same information applies here as well.
I think I've tried messing with aspack stuff before and didn't have any luck with it. However, I wouldn't mind trying again to confirm that. Can you send me a link to the file?

thers is many programs you should look too to add
to un/pack files with *.z *.lib files
to unpack SFX files of install shiled v3.0
to un/pack files with *.cab
if the setup is seperated into disks ( you should find data1.cab, data2.cab,.. inside folders like Disk1, Disk2,..) you should combine before extract.. so i5comp can do so..
i6comp (what you did)
it supports v7.0 of install shiled (not v9.0).. i need help on this info guys
extracts files from ole files (microsoft doc, ppt, mst, msi,..)
extracts jpg files from any documents with jpeg signature

Sorr, ma$e, I don't know what could be causing that problem off the top of my head. Let me give it some more thought and see if I can find a way to replicate it on my end.
That's not a bad idea. I think it might be nice to have a small options page where you can set this option, whether or not you want it to maintain your history in the registry, etc. I wouldn't want to set it by default, though, because it would probably get it my way more often than not.
thers is many programs you should look too to add
Thanks, freeko! I'm always on the lookout for better programs to handle extraction. I'll be sure to check these out and see what improvements I can make.
Got it, thanks.
It's still on my todo list, just been very busy with other things. The curious are welcome to check out my software page to some of the other stuff I've been working on:

ggf31416, is there any chance you can repost this file? I didn't download it when you originally posted it, and now it's expired. It sounds like a good test case to work with.
