You would use something like:

msiexec /a "C:\drive abcd.msi" /qb TARGETDIR="C:\extracted Folder"

rikin_shah, that's virtually identical to the command I posted, any particular reason you felt the need to repeat my post?

Apology friend...
I opened the question and tried the command in my command window! Didn't know you have already answered the same thing.

Hope you understand.
