Yesterday I wrote about how to extract the contents of a .msi executable file, now I am writing about how to extract the contents of an .exe executable file. Extracting the contents of an exe file is rather easier than that of msi file.
However for this purpose also, you need to have a tool built for this purpose only. If you have WinRar installed in your system you can extract the contents easily but in case you don’t, then here is a tool called Universal Extractor.
As the name suggests, Universal Extractor is capable of extracting many packages like self executable files like exe or archive files like 7z, rar etc. The tool supports lots and lots of formats which it can extract easily. Universal Extractor is a program designed to decompress and extract files from any type of archive or installer, such as ZIP or RAR files, self-extracting EXE files, application installers, etc.
The tool is capable of extracting the contents of the archive or self executable files however it can’t create any archive file on its own. But if you only wish to have a tool to see the contents of an archive or other packages, then this is the tool to have in your system.
