You can download the CSCCMD tool v1.1 from Microsoft Support (or try finding it on the Internet may be easier), and then follow the following support document from Microsoft using the /Extract switch (The syntax is near the bottom).

for example: csccmd /EXTRACT /RECURSE /TARGET:c:\csc-files

I'm sorry, the file you link to does not work in Windows 7 professional: the ordinal 54 could not be located in the dynamic link library CSCDLL.dll – jao Jul 6 '11 at 20:29
