UniExtract error: Unpacking failed. This version is not supported

I needed to repackage an Inno Setup package. So I grabbed Universal Extractor (uniextract) latest version to extract the .exe file, but extraction gave the following error:

Extracting an Inno Setup package using Universal Extractor v1.61 failed
Extracting an Inno Setup package using Universal Extractor v1.61 failed

The log file uniextract.txt:

Signature detected: Inno Setup Setup Data (5.3.10) (u)
This is not directly supported, but i’ll try to unpack it as version 5309
; Version detected: 5310 (Unicode)
Critical error: The setup files are corrupted. Please obtain a new copy of the program.
Unpacking failed. This version is not supported.

It seams UniExtract version 1.61 cannot extract version 5.3.10 Inno Setup archives. With this in mind I tried extracting the archive using the command line tool innounp.exe, with great success:

extract Inno Setup package with innounp
extract Inno Setup package with innounp

The currect Innounp versions supports Inno Setup versions 2.0.8 through 5.4.2

Download Innounp from sourceforge.

  1. Love UniExtract

    Go to Uniextract official page: http://legroom.net/software/uniextract ;
    Scroll down the page, you should see ‘Credits’ section;
    Click on the links provided (the one you need to update);
    On the new page find ‘Download’ button/URL link… click and save to HDD;
    Unpack the file, copy (replace) all necessary file(s) to your …\Universal Extractor\bin\ folder was installed;
    Which file(s)? Just compare the filenames, usually same filenames only differ in version and file size.
