Add "Extract MSI" command to Windows Explorer Context Menu

Posted on 2013-08-07

Many software or tools are provided as MSI files. There are some tools like LessMSI, but there is a simpler way to add a “Extract MSI” command to your Windows Explorer Context Menu. However, if you make a small registry modification (without Windows reboot), you can add the ability to Extract these file…

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Msi.Package\shell\Extract MSI\command]
@="msiexec.exe /a \"%1\" /qb TARGETDIR=\"%1 Extracted\""
Download this file and merge with your registry. Right-click on a MSI file and click on the new command "Extract MSI".
