Quick Tip: Extracting files from Windows Installer (MSI) Setup Files

March 14th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

Had to extract some files from a Windows Installer setup, a mental note of the command line:

$ msiexec /a [target.msi] /qb TARGETDIR=[Path to extract]

Whilst on the topic of MSI’s, I can’t live without msi2xml. Perfect for that quick hack to an MSI that simply wont install because of OS Checks or something else – yes, I mess with things far more than I’d like to admit 😉
