Define "useful"? It's nothing but a ZIP archive after all...  ???

That one just indiscriminately extracts the files in an .MSI archive, I am not sure if that is what he wants/needs.

Unfortunately, he has been a bit "brief" on what exactly he wants to do... ???

Well, but for that you do not need any obscure program, any ZIP compatible archiver will do just fine...   8)

That program just extract files, you can't see what there is.
PS I'm not a so verbal person in english, so i except answers with some real things, not meanless soft talk.

I hope Ralf test LessMSI.exe to see what i mean.

Sorry, but at least as far as I am concerned, I have neither psychic nor Vulcan mind-reading capabilities, I can only go by what you describe/post...

Well, it would have helped in your previous reply if you would have made clear that you are referring to a specific program with that name. Just as you posted it, it just didn't make any sense...
