How to extract a Inno Setup Installer. This is not a .7z, or any other file that 7z can extract. according to the file command this is a file of the type:

  • PE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386, for MS Windows

And exiftool says this:

............                    : ..........
Comments                        : This installation was built with Inno Setup.
............                    : ..........
File Description                : Package for Universal Extractor

How Do I extract this?

  • @Serg InnoSetup installation programs cannot be opened or read with the 7z utility. – Nathan Osman Apr 11 '16 at 19:28

You need to use innoextract Install innoextract to extract the contents of an InnoSetup installation program. Once installed, the application can be run as follows:

innoextract setup-something-1.0.0.exe

Note that files are extracted to the current directory.
