Many users dislike the automatic msi installer with products like Apache, and prefer zip archives. Here's a simple way how to extract all files from a msi archive without installing.

you need msiexec version 3.x (can be downloaded from M$)

Code:

msiexec /a product.msi


This launches msiexec in administrative mode where you can choose a place where to extract the files to.

Use the following command to perform the extraction:

msiexec /a filepath to MSI file /qb TARGETDIR=filepath to target folder

Replace filepath with the path of the MSI file.
Replace filepath to target folder with the path of the folder you want the files to be extracted to

Example: msiexec /a c:\myfile.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:\myfolder

- Press Enter and you’re done. The files within the MSI installer will be extracted to the folder you specified.
