MSI Unpacker, as the name suggests, does one thing- it unpacks MSI (Windows Installer) files but it does it well- I can't remember a single MSI file it failed to extract.
home page - as far as I know it never had one

MSI Unpacker versions 1.3.0 and 1.5.0 are freeware while MSI Unpacker version 1.4.1 says that it is licensed under GNU General Public License but I don't know whether the source code has ever been published.
MSI Unpacker (versions 1.3.0 and 1.4.1) is portable and stealth- it saves no settings- just extract the archive and run MSI_Unpacker.exe. MSI Unpacker version 1.5.0 comes in MSI installer- extract the installer and run MSI_Unpacker.exe.
I recommend MSI Unpacker version 1.4.1, it works better than the latest one (1.5.0).
MSI Unpacker does not support drag&drop.
How to use MSI Unpacker- run MSI_Unpacker.exe, click Browse button to select a MSI file, click Save Location button and click Unpack button.
For convenience I always place the MSI files I want to extract on my desktop.
All I know about the developer of MSI Unpacker (from Readme.txt) is his name (Danilo Gergar) and his e-mail address. MSI Unpacker version 1.5.0 says:
