Cabinet files – extract options

Ok, you got a cabinet file (.cab –> but you cannot extract it via (Extract.exe/Expand.exe).

What now?

Firstly, try 7-Zip –>

Secondary, try Uniextract –>

Thirdly, try Unshield (*NIX) –>

Finally, use Installshield resp. download the free trial and use the ‘InstallShield Cabinet and Log Viewer’ (IsCabView.exe) –>

Why all the fuzz? ‘Difficult’ CAB files are mostly newer Installshield CAB files (> approx. Version 9.0) which can only be easily opened via the IsCabView.exe.

Happy extracting! Smile
