    Extract Files etc out of or from an MSI

    Am attempting to get the files out of the MicrosoftFixit50199.msi ( How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) ), things I have attempted so far :

    1. msiexec command ( running through a command prompt that I right clicked on --> Run As Administrator --> Yes ) Then pasted the below into the command prompt and pressed enter

    msiexec /a "C:\HTA Projectsv2\Repair LAN\50199 Reset TCP.IP\MicrosoftFixit50199.msi" /qb TARGETDIR="C:\HTA Projectsv2\Repair LAN\50199 Reset TCP.IP\MicrosoftFixit50199"

    2. Attempted the 3 methods through universal extractor ( Universal Extractor | LegRoom.net )

    Both methods just extract a bunch of gibberish files - I was hoping for a vbscript / bat file and some other things as wanted to see how the microsoft auto fix msi files repair or reset TCP.IP Stack and was hoping to do the same for a Winsock reset

    I know you can use the netsh utility to reset both tcp/ip stack and winsocks

    Have Opened the msi with Orca and one of the custom actions is:

    netsh_XP_COMMAND 3186 netsh_XP_PROP int ip reset [SystemFolder]resetlog.txt

    so maybe the msi itself is literally just running the command detailed in the knowledge base.

    Pretty much all any of the Fixit tools do is automate the commands listed in the "Let me fix it myself" section of the corresponding KB article.

    AngryTechnician is correct. The custom actions just do what is listed in the KB article. One deals with XP and Server 2003, while the other is for Vista/Server 2008 and Windows 7.

    I presume the Netsh commands could be used for either ( XP / Server 2003 ) or Vista / Windows 7 / Server 2008 ??

    Correct. I'm not sure why Microsoft chose to have different commands when one would do...

    Code:
    netsh int ip reset %temp%\resetlog.txt
