how to extract files from a CAB based patch?
Hi!

I need to know how a patch with a CAB file does work internally.

These CAB files include files with the extension
..manifest
..mum
..cat
files without any extension
and an XML-based catalog called _manifest_.cix.xml

Is there a way I can manually generate the new (patched) file from that cab?

Old-style patches could be started with an extract switch like /x so
that I could get the patched file quite easily.

What do I have to do with these cab files to get the files that would
replace the old ones?

I need to have the new files without actually applying the patch.

Thanks in advance!

T.

Not sure if these address your issue, T. Have a look see anyway.

You cannot extract the contents of a Microsoft Update Standalone Package
for Windows Vista

of .msu files in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008

MowGreen, you are my friend!

;-)

I think this is quite what I've been looking for! I just took a quick
look at it and it seems that's the information I needed!

Thanks a lot!


Regards,
T.
