Is there a program or a script out there to extract the contents of a Windows installer under Mac Os X?

Under Windows there is the Universal Extractor, I am looking like something like that for Mac. I don't know if there is a universal solution to this problem or if I would need a extractor specific to the type of installer. In my case I am actually trying to get the installer from to extract so I can use them with Boxer.

Unfortunately that doesn't work. – James McMahon Aug 26 '12 at 15:47
From the link below: "Many kinds of .exe self-extracting formats are supported. However, if you find one that is not, please post an issue on the bug tracker." There's also support for MSI, NSIS and CAB archives. – Pere Aug 26 '12 at 15:54
I've had limited luck with 7-Zip. There's a command line version for OS X. – user3463 Aug 26 '12 at 18:29
