Added files listing, you can now browse and extract files using their real names and folders as installed on a client machine. See the readme file for more info.
Let me know, if it works for you and please report any problematic msi files.
Note, that it is not always possible to extract files, in this case files with 0 byte size are created.
1. pluginst.inf is missing, something like that:
Code: Select all
[plugininstall] description=msi-plus: Unpacker plugin for MSI files descriptiondeu=msi-plus: Entpacker-Plugin für MSI-Dateien type=wcx file=msi-plus.wcx defaultdir=msi-plus defaultextension=msi
3. Do not show packer icon please, otherwise installations cannot be started anymore by doubleclicking. Manual tweaking is rather annoying. It looks like you haven't adjusted the flags at all, your plugin is even registered to be able to pack MSI...
After a few test files I can report that it's working better than Install Explorer. Good job!
I am not sure if you are *really* interested in feedback regarding your silence, but as you have asked for it...
This file is extracted with 0 bytes, InstallExplorer extracts correctly:
kav6.de.msi\SourceDir\Kaspersky Lab\Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6.0\kav60.bav
The username and password are public, so don't delete please.
I don't like the autoinstall feature myself and that is the reason I didn't include it in the zip. But I will add it soon...
Ini file is actually not needed at all, feel free to remove it from if you don't set the listFiles and resolveDirs values to false.
As for the packer icon - I didn't even know I could do that, as my header file didn't have the variable specified. But I won't probably change this one unless there is a strong push from others. When I work with MSI files I usually need to browse them not install. When I need to install I just press CTRL + ENTER and then ENTER to execute the installation package.
And yes, the flags are registered to be able to pack MSI, because you can update and add tables and update streams. I don't like it either, but without the PK_CAPS_NEW TC didn't let me update files in archive. Any ideas from others? Is this as designed?
I will take a look at the MSI file and try to find what is wrong.
Thanks a lot for the feedback!
This should fix the issue with missing _tc folder.

Can you give me more details, please? Sounds like some function or plugin failed in the middle. What are the names of these files?0 byte files are left in _tc
