If you download OpenSSL, you can use the OpenSSL tool to convert between PEM (Base64), PKCS7 and PKCS12 formats:
E.g.
Convert pkcs7 to PEM:
openssl pkcs7 -in file.p7 -out file.pem -nodes

The file might not be pkcs7 format, so try this command:
openssl dgst -in file.p7 -out file.pem -nodes

See this article:

By the looks of it, it is not possible to decode such a file back to text. A signature is just  digital signature, not the actual text.

e.g. openssl dgst file.sign

will display a hex printable version of the digital signature
