I'm trying to extract an InstallShield exe instead of installing the program. v1.6.1 with win7 x64 ultimate I choose Installshield /b switch and it starts out ok, but it seems like Universal Extractor doesn't give the process enough time(for the exe to run and to click through all the options), because at exactly the same time(about 10 seconds maybe) every time it stops and give an error "Initialization failed. Please exit the installer, then click OK to continue.". So I click OK then another popup says: filexx could not be extracted. It appears to be an InstallShield installer, which is supported, but extraction failed. Please see the log file for more information.
