Decompressing CAB files in VBScript

Posted on 2005-04-19

I'm sending compressed data (CAB file) from server (VB) to client (ASP), then I store them on local. I need to unpack all files from CAB since they need to be printed from MS Word. I tried to find some solution, how to decompress CAB in VBS, but it lead me to nowhere...
Only possible way to do that (at least I think so) is through Win API, setupapi.dll, which provides "SetupIterateCabinet" method. I tried to emply that using wshAPIToolkitObject, but it didn't work:( Do you have any other idea, please?

Thank you
