    probably not the right way but double click on the exe and it will extract and a window will appear asking you if you want to install, do nothing, go in to the app data folder and you'll find all the extracted files in a temp folder

    start cmd as admin and try "filename.exe /extract" That should work just fine..

    For the cabfiles, you can use winrar or whatever or the expand command.
