I have successfully created a multi part CAB file using makecab and a ddf file:
.OPTION EXPLICIT .Set CabinetNameTemplate=package.* .set DiskDirectoryTemplate=Disk .Set MaxDiskSize=10485760 ; 10 MB .Set Cabinet=on .Set Compress=on ; my files go here
This created a bunch of files "package.1", "package.2", etc. How do I expand these files? I tried: expand Disk\package.1 -F:* Disk\Temp, which worked for a single part file, but fails for multi part cab with the error:
One or more files could not be expanded. Delta Package Expander Returned 0x80070032 Expanding File disk\package.1 Incomplete, Error Code=0x80070032 Error Description: The request is not supported.
NOTE: I cannot use any external tools not included in default installation of Windows XP. Otherwise I would just use 7zip. Btw. 7zip does extract these files no problem.
