    Can not extract .msi file through command line.
    i have tried to extract .msi file from command line on windows 7 it gives message "Error: Can not open file as archive".

    Perhaps, it is not a valid MSI file. It may be incomplete, damaged or nonstandard. Does it install at all? Does it have a digital signature?

      When i right click on .Msi file and select extract here then it is extracted but when same file is passed to command line then it gives error "Can not open file as archive".

        Do you use the same version on 7-Zip for console and GUI extraction? Please, give the precise command you use for both cases.
