The problem with UNetBootin (current version 408) is that it boots SysLinux and runs its menu from there. You can get out of the menu to the boot prompt (Esc key), but Windows setup.exe isn't an executable file under Linux, so I don't see any way this is ever going to work.

If you look at UNetBootIn's website, they divide Linux distros into those whose installations are supported, those which can be booted, and those which can't. There's also a short list of other supported bootable apps. So it isn't even reliable for Linux, never mind Windows.

If you look at SysLinux's configuration, it is possible to set it up to boot NT, but you'd need to update syslinux.cfg and provide some more files. UNetBootIn has set it up to run a Linux boot menu.

Maybe previous versions worked differently?

can you be more specific what you want to achieve??
which portable os you are trying to boot?
if you are not asking properly you are not going to get any answer.
