But the little support for extracting setups, created with NSIS, is taken out.
The users from NSIS don't want this behaviour, the are afraid to loss there secrets.
(Hint: use nsis.dll from 7z v4.40)

Dig around the forums there and you'll find fistfuls of the same. Igor silently toils away cleaning up his code and fixing a bug or two when he can and folks keep slinging the mud at him like no other i've seen. You should have seen the bile spewed over drag-n-drop functionality.  :o eek! I agree it was a much-missed function, but people were questioning his basic competence as a programmer over it.

Good point, Edvard. And Igor Pavlov, the developer, is one THE nicest guys in all of tech. Many of the gripes I come across are with 7-Zip's interface more than anything else at this point.
