innoextract currently only supports extracting all the data. There is no support for extracting individual files, components or languages.
Included scripts and checks are not executed.
Data is always extracted to the current directory and the mapping from Inno Setup variables like the application directory to subdirecto-
ries is hard-coded.
innoextract does not check if an installer includes multiple files with the same name and will continually overwrite the destination file
Names for data files in multi-file installers must follow the standard naming scheme.
Encrypted installers are not supported.
No known bugs.
