.msp extractor for .cab files

Recommended Posts

I wrote this in the old toolkit section first:

 

could the .exe to .msp converter accept .cab files as well as .exe files? Windows update catalog provides .cab files but is a very usefull source for update files.

What for advantage should have such a conversion? It make no sense, sorry!

 

Every update-file (.MSU) contains already the .CAB-file for the update itself together with a couple of small, let say, administration files.

 

BTW, the .EXE to .MSP-converter extracts the updates for MS-Office, without text- and xml-files to put them in the Updates-folder of the Office installation DVD.

It is for convenience, just like the funktion that already exists is. Just depends on what format of update files is more convenient for you to obtain. For both formats you can use 7zip to extract the msp. But if you have an automation for one format, why not include the other? Office updates come in both types.
