Windows 7: Extracting MSU from Installer

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
Extracting MSU from Installer

I've tried both methods here many, many times: Windows Update - Extract an Update

The KB_Extractor keeps giving me the error that I can't extract x64 files on a 32bit system. My system is obviously 64bit, and I'v never had any error like that.

The cmd line method doesn't seem to work for me at all. It either says the directory doesn't exist, or that -f is an unrecognized command.

All I want to do is extract the MSU files from a few .msi & .exe files for integration.

Update: I got the command "expand" to run. That issue was due to a few spelling & mistyped errors (forgot _ for space). But it said it "Can't open input file:" Unblocked the .exe files, tried again, and still can't open them.

Any ideas how to get these extracted???
