Known Limitations

  • The tool (both desktop & web) works best with Python 3.x based PyInstaller executables. Python 2.x based executables are still supported but the PYZ archive won’t be extracted.

  • Extracting large files using the web version may crash the browser specifically on mobile devices with low RAM.

  • Encrypted pyz archives are not supported at present.
