Using Winrar's Unrar.exe from the command line, how do i use the iso.fmt file to open extract an ISO's contetse to a folder. Simmilar to decompressing a .rar or a .zip archive.

Note: i only need to do this on one iso, i dont need some fance script example to open every iso in a folder or in a directory, i can handle that part.
Note: for bandwidth allocation purposes i do not want to use any additional software, my installation auitopmatior is already bulky enough.

Any help would be very appricated!



I know to unrar you can use
HTML Code:
unrar e c:\yourfile.rar
However for ISO i don't know if it will work. I personally keep getting error (file not a rar) Please have a look at this article. Using the WinRAR Command-line tools in Windows


However if you are looking to Extract a ISO file from a command line Please download piso.exe and poweriso.exe (Not the setup) It works perfect for me. I even add it to winrar and run it as a setup and it unzips perfectly. Extract iso file from command line

Sorry for re-posting. Couldn't find the edit button. i found a solution, Use winrar.exe not all the files you only need that one file.

Download winrar from WinRAR download and support: Download
Put only winrar.exe in same folder or in system32 and try one of these


Simple: Copy FileName.iso to Newfolder
WinRAR.exe x -ow "FileName.iso" "Newfolder/"


Finds all .ISO files and puts them in output folder
WinRAR.exe x -y -ow *.iso "Output folder/"
Run winrar x (extract from file) -y (say yes to everything) *.iso (Wild card = Find files ending .iso) Output folder

Finds ISO files and puts them in folder iso With Sub Directory Depending on the name of the ISO.
WinRAR.exe x -y -ow -ad *.iso *folder iso/


Finds ISO and puts them all in 1 directory. (If you use this all iso will be together in one folder

WinRAR.exe x -y -ow *.iso *.iso/


To find all the winrar commands go to c:\program files\winrar dir and find rar.txt
