Hi

Any one know a Free cab file editor? I looked but seems you gotta pay? As is the case there is always a free alternative when it comes to this sort of thing.

I am updating our network booters to include new nic drivers for our newer machines?
I drilled down and found they are nested in CAB files. Zip apps dont cut it.

Fingers crossed! :dubbio:

You can use Microsoft's makecab.exe or cabarc.exe.

Well, I guess this depends on the compression app that you're using.

I'd recommend trying tugzip. If I'm not mistaken, you can open the cab file and edit the files inside.

It's freeware - http://tugzip.com

Being this posted in "DOS and FreeDOS", maybe suggesting a Windows app is not the best choice. :D
Or the post has been posted "randomly"? :dubbio:

@Technotika
Check this seemingly completely unrelated thread (if we are actually talking of DOS):
http://www.msfn.org/...showtopic=81068
and this one:

Tugzip turns out to be quite special - actually lets you see (and extract) the bootable data from an ISO - nice one!

Sure :dubbio:, and what do you think 7-zip does? :D
