Add Extract/Unzip MSI Files to Windows Explorer Context Menu

while looking for a utility to Extract MSI Files today. I know we have a few tools that should have made this easier, lol. However, if you make a small registry merge file and merge your entries to the registry you can add the ability to Extract MSIs to the Windows Explorer Context Menu…  

   1:  Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
   2:  [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Msi.Package\shell\Extract MSI\command]
   3:  @="msiexec.exe /a \"%1\" /qb TARGETDIR=\"%1 Extracted\""

.csharpcode, .csharpcode pre
font-size: small;
color: black;
font-family: consolas, “Courier New”, courier, monospace;
background-color: #ffffff;
/*white-space: pre;*/
.csharpcode pre { margin: 0em; }
.csharpcode .rem { color: #008000; }
.csharpcode .kwrd { color: #0000ff; }
.csharpcode .str { color: #006080; }
.csharpcode .op { color: #0000c0; }
.csharpcode .preproc { color: #cc6633; }
.csharpcode .asp { background-color: #ffff00; }
.csharpcode .html { color: #800000; }
.csharpcode .attr { color: #ff0000; }
.csharpcode .alt
background-color: #f4f4f4;
width: 100%;
margin: 0em;
.csharpcode .lnum { color: #606060; }



I have included the a txt file AddExtractMSIContextExplorer.txt

  just rename .txt to reg and merge with your registry…
