comment Extracting msi files using Linux
That indeed seems to be the best solution, using wine and waiting for lessmsi for Linux.

comment Extracting msi files using Linux
What I'd like to do is create a buildscript for Archlinux, for which a set up wine is quite a bulky dependency just to be able to install something that should depend solely on mono.

comment Extracting msi files using Linux
Thanks, I already read the article and it does not resolve the 7zip issues (neither in combination with e.g. cabextract). Jsmsix would still require wine because you can't run Windows executables natively.

Thanks for the hint, but cabextract does not even partially conserve filenames and directories (so it performs worse than 7zip).

comment How to extract files from MSI package?
