Looking to somehow obtain the .inf and related driver files from Dell packaged driver setup.exe’s to use in a sysprep driver list. There seems to be .cab files but I can’t seem to extract them with winrar. I’ve used Wise Package Studio to monitor a driver install and get the files that way but I’m looking for a simpler and more foolproof solution than smart capturing every driver we will ever need.

On a side note I’m investigating the possibilities of paying somebody else to worry about this issue with this Universal Imaging Utility software:

http://www.binaryresearch.net/UIU/About.htm

It has a huge driver database that would take care of the above issues. I downloaded a demo and it worked well. Any information on this issue or software would be appreciated.

Thanks

Try to unarchive the EXE with Winzip. Sometimes this works if the EXE is just a ZIP wrapper.

Yep, I tryed that too. I'm sure the "meat" of what I need is in those cabs, just cant seem to get them open. Looks like the Intel chipset drivers have a -A switch that will extract the files from the setup to C:\Program Files\Intel\InfInst. Lets hope the dell packages have something like that.

Ok, apparently install shield cabs are not like MS cabs. I used a program called i6comp to extract the cab files, all is good.

Also a nice alternative is the application ZipScan.
