Extract the Contents of a WiX Burn Setup Executable

To extract the contents of a setup executable created by the WiX Burn compiler, use this command line:

dark setup.exe -x extractfolder

This assumes that the dark.exe program is on the path, that the name of the executable that you want to extract is setup.exe and that extractfolder is the path to the folder in which you wish to extract the contents. It will create two sub-folders: AttachedContainer and Ux. The AttachedContainer folder will have the payloads that are installed into the executable. The Ux folder will contain all of the files necessary to build the user interface of the application.
