For a commercial application in MSVC++, I need to be able to programmatically extract a specific .ini file from a InstallShield .cab file and just read it for our analysis, but not change and put it back again. With ZipScan 2.2 and i5comp.exe which both require ZDATAI51.DLL (in my case it was ZD51145.DLL, Productversion 5, 10, 145, 0) I already managed to extract our ini files, so i guess that our cabs are availabe in this Version. My Problem is, that there is neither a documentation for this DLL nor are we allowed(I believe) to distribute this DLL in a commercial application. Is there any solution, like an interface for this matter? Thanks in advance!

There used to be a CAB tool from InstallShield but it's not redistributable.
