MSI Unpacker Review

Sven Sorensen
Effectively extract the contents of an MSI installation file
A review of MSI Unpacker by Sven Sørensen

MSI Unpacker is a basic tool which can extract the contents from Microsoft Installer files. In essence, it isn't very dissimilar from archivers like Winzip or 7Zip.

Once you have the application running, its user interface involves opening an MSI file from your system, selecting a location for save the contents of the extraction and hitting the "Unpack" button.

The procedure takes a little bit of time depending on your system, and once complete, files from the MSI file will be accessible from Windows Explorer inside the folder specified in "Save Location".

MSI Unpacker is completely portable and thus can be run from a USB stick or from anywhere else. It leaves no registry entries.

Apart from that, MSI Unpacker provides no other functionality and thus is not difficult to use or understand. Overall, it completes its singular task and is thus useful for anybody wishing to extract the contents of a Windows Installer file.
