How to open CAB files



OPEN AND EXTRACT CAB FILES

Open and extract CAB files


PeaZip offers read-only support (extractor / opener) for CAB file format, providing a free alternative utility to open (list content) and extract .cab packages under Windows and Linux operating systems. The software can also be used to convert CAB files to any other write-supported format (i.e. re-pack existing Cabinet file into zip, 7z, etc).

Read also: what is .cab file format

As alternative utilities to work with Microsoft CAB format, 7-Zip (on MS Windows systems) and p7zip (on Linux/BSD), both free and Open Source tools, can be employed with same forementioned limitations applying to PeaZip (extractor / opener only).

Create / update CAB file


PeaZip support for CAB files is read-only (limited to work as  cab viewer / reader and extractor), the application cannot write to .cab format to create a new package or to edit an existing one.

How to convert CAB files


To convert CAB files into another archive format, Convert button extracts and then re-pack the output into any write-supported format (7z, arc, pea, tar, zip...), optionally keeping or discarding original archives.
This utility can be used either for creating an output archive for each individual input item, or for consolidating all input data in a single output archive.

Open CAB files

To open a cab file in PeaZip, and view, browse, and search content inside the archive:

  • double click the cab archive, if file extension is associated with the PeaZip (default)
  • if cab file type is not associated with PeaZip, right-click on the archive and use system context menu "Open as archive" entry, that will attempt to read any user provided file type regardless file associations. Once opened, cab container's content can be "unzipped", or inspected to verify / select desired content to be extracted


Extract CAB files

Employ one of the procedures described below to decompress ("unzip") .cab archives using PeaZip as opener / extractor application

  • Extract CAB file from the system
    • Select one or more MS CABINET files and use context menu entry "Extract..." to display full extraction screen GUI where to set output path, password, and other options

    • Select one or more archives and use context menu entry Extract here or Extract here (to new folder) for quick extraction with no further confirmation

  • CAB extraction within PeaZip program

    • Extract button shows full featured archive extraction screen providing access to all options (password, set output path, open output path after extraction, keep or delete original archives, etc) and can send to extraction selected items only

    • Extract all to... button activate a simplified dialog asking for output path only

    • Simply drag & drop desired objects from the application to the system

    • Doubleclick on an archived file to open it in preview mode, i.e. to inspect its content before considering the need for real extraction

Codesigned CAB files

PeaZip can manage codesigned CAB files as usual (browse and extract); when working on such containers Test function will inform user there is data (the codesigning data) after the end of the archive area.
