Well I have such thing that I have captured it on XP after what i also need that it works on Win7 but they have different locations for those files, and if I do manual input into MSI then it does not work as expected, that is why I know that there is some command line which do that, basicaly installs cab file silently.

A cab file is just an archive, just like a zip-file. Making it "install silently" depends on what the content is.

Thank you that worked, just thinking if there is .ocx and other files is it registering them also or just extracting, also not sure is it needed to be regitered or what ever ;)

It would be best to extract the files from the CAB and add them into a MSI, which will automate the registration process, as necessary.
