You can install it from PyPI:
pip install unpy2exe
You can install dependencies through
pip install -r requirements.txt
For .exe files generated with Python 2.x, you will need to run unpy2exe with Python 2.x; similarly, for Python 3.x .exe files, you will need to run unpy2exe with Python 3.x. Note the same unpy2exe source code works for both, but you will need to install the dependencies accordingly.
On the other hand, to be able to run the extracted .pyc file, you will need the same Python version used to generate the .exe, or at least the same major version (although it is highly probable you could still get some issues or crashes if the version doesn't match the original bytecode).
