Software: Extracting Contents of an MSI

I just went through a bunch of troubleshooting to try to get the Microsoft Portrait installer to work, and it just wouldn’t listen. I began scouring the net to find an MSI extraction method and came across this solution. It worked.

To quote:
I looked at the Project Windows Installer XML (WiX) toolset. I downloaded the wix i386 binaries and extracted the ZIP file. Then I ran –
Dark.exe file.MSI file.XML /x .

That would be:
dark.exe [the installer file].MSI [some log file name].xml /x [the full path to be extracted to]
