Just wondering but

is there any possible way to extract certain files from an installer file? not all, but just a few files?

welcome to the forum

if installer file can be opened with winrar it is possible

in some cases it’s possible using the software used to compile the installer, for example installshield or Wise. do a google search to find them

well, I’m talking a DVD decryptor sort of program, where you just go in, select what files you want and get out without installing the whole program.

as I said, if the file can be opened with winrar, then you can select single files and extract on HD.

for example, try to open a nero update with winrar and see what it contain

oh ok. thank you. that does work.

with wise installer or installshield should be possible to open also .msi files
