extract a installer internet download bootstrap

I am trying to extract a driver from the exe file downloaded from the website. I need to do this to be able to import it into MDT driver database.
The driver i am stuck on is a "windows installer internet download bootstrap" file. I have tried using winrar do do this but just says "the archive is corrupt". I have tryed copying it from the temp files but it does not extract until the installation begins and it is over in about a second. way do fast for me do do anything to it

any ideas?

This file doesn't suppoer extraction. You have to use /s for silent installation of the package.

Hope this is useful to you:


I used these when I needed to convert a exe to msi during a application upgrade where the application did not supported extraction.

I ended up persevering with copying the driver files from the temp directory during install. I could not get any other ideas to work
