I have an .exe file which is actually archive and I need to extract it in command line in unattended way to be able to further automate the installation of a program it "installs".

So my question is what command line archive tool can do it? As it seems that winzip's one can't.

You will find most people would recommend 7zip's command line tool for this.

See here for the command line tool usage.
