How can I extract the content of an MSI file?

A. Numerous utilities are available for extracting the content of an
MSI file. For example, you can use Msidb.

However,
another way is to perform an administrative installation, using the /a
switch and specifying a target folder for the extraction. For example:

msiexec /a mm26_enu.msi /qb TARGETDIR=d:\temp\mmextract
