@Dwayne - you'll also have to provide a bit more information, like what error messages you're seeing (if any) etc. –  ChrisF Nov 18 '09 at 21:45

You may use Universal Extractor to extract the contents of the .CAB file and install them manually, if an installation program is included in the archive.

A cab file is a compressed archive, like zip.

You should extract the contents of the file (double click then extract), and look for a installer (setup.msi or setup.exe etc.)
