Another method of getting the files out the exe like you want would be to copy the exe file to the C drive of a windows xp machine. I then opened a command line and ran the following command

filename.exe /d:c:\dir

Once you run that it will begin extractin the files out. If you look in the root of your C drive you will see a new folder with a random name. Once the file is fully extracted a message will come up on your screen saying the windows versions doesnt match the update. At this point you can copy the randomly named folder to another location. This is the update files.

Once you hit ok the temp random named folder will dissappear.
