Extract.exe - Windows 2000 Resource Kit Utility
|Extract.exe - Extract Cabinet
This command-line tool extracts individual files from compressed cabinet (.cab) files. Using cabinet files is a highly efficient method of compression and distribution that has been used by Microsoft for many years. It is now available to anyone who needs to compress and distribute multiple files. The cabinet file format is a non-proprietary format based on Lempel-Ziv compression. At the heart of this format is the MakeCAB compression tool, a loss-less data compression tool included with Windows 2000 that provides efficient compression for setup programs and Internet applications alike. With MakeCAB, you can store multiple files in a single cabinet file and carry compression across files.
