View Full Version : InstallShield Cab
5th March 2003, 20:03
Is somewhere a plugin available to extract installshield 5.5 cab files with nsis. i have a small dos program in c with source available which can do that. it's name is i5comp. but i am not a c programmer, so i can't write an plugin. i want to build an installer for an mod for a game which needs files from it's install shield cab file from the game cd. i am currently using i5comp via exec to do that, but that looks not very nice. thx in advance.

if u r just worried about the look try using the nsExec plugin instead which will not show a dos window.

There is no plug-in that does that AFAIK. If it doesn't look nice to execute it because it opens a DOS window you can use nsExec. Have a look at the examples in Contrib\nsExec. nsExec executes DOS programs and gives you control of the output so it won't pop-up a DOS box. You can redirect the output to the installer log window using nsExec::ExecToLog, to the stack using nsExec::ExecToStack or to the great void using nsExec::Exec.
