IEAK 11 - Custom Components - CAB files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation where I need to extract/install two CAB files before the installation of IE11. I know I can use the IEAK 11 to add the CAB files and direct extraction to occur before IE11 is installed. What I don't understand is how I'm supposed to provide the extract command.

    Number 5 at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn454905.aspx explains that I need to use an extraction command, which I assume is extract.exe. However, extract.exe is typically not found in Windows natively. (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/132913)

    Anyone have any suggestions? Do I need to copy extract.exe to the machine before I installed IE11? Does the IE11 installer allow for extraction of components, so I'll just need to know the commands?
