Using the Extract command for Windows cab files :

C:\>extract /a c:\windows\options\cabs\win98_41.cab notepad.exe /L c:\00 |more

This will search for Notepad in all cab folders beginning with Cab 41 & put Notepad in the c:\00 folder. |more is not required( the pipe command )

C:\>extract /a /d c:\windows\options\cabs\win98_41.cab sol.exe |more

This will give the cab location of sol.exe (Solitaire!!) beginning the search at cab 41. It will not do an extraction.

OR

Win98 :
To Extract a file from .cab files : use sfc.exe ( start/run ) or use the sytem file checker utility from : start/prog/access/system tools/system info/tools/syst file ckr
