Pc manufactures  are now using self-extracting EXE packages to install drivers when you down load them from there support websites.

Which is very handy when you have one or two pc’s to install the drivers on to, but not so much when you are building an image for multiple pc’s or trying to look at driver file without having to run the .exe or install it.

This is where the universal extractor software is very helpful tool to use.

Download from here – Universal Extractor

Run the Uniextract Installer and go though the steps of installing accepting all the defaults and let it install

Once installed right-click on the self-extracting EXE files you want the driver from and select uniextract files
