MSI is a format used for application installation in Windows.
Today I had to extract exe file from MSI file and I found a very simple way to do it in Linux.
It turned out that 7zip windows application is able to extract files from MSI files. At first I check that it worked in Windows:
For the Linux I used the 7z command: 7z x msi-file.msi
