Extract data from InstallShield CAB files

An installer created by the InstallShield software stores the files it will install inside of InstallShield Cabinet Files. It would thus be desirable to be able to extract the Microsoft Cabinet Files from the InstallShield Cabinet Files in order to be able to install the applications without access to Microsoft Windows.

  • Use a well known open source license MIT
  • Work on both little-endian and big-endian systems
  • Separate the implementation in a tool and a library
  • Support InstallShield versions 5 and later
  • Be able to list contents of InstallShield Cabinet Files
  • Be able to extract files from InstallShield Cabinet Files
