SQL Server – Extract files from extractable exe


Upon mounting our MS SQL Server 2014 ISO File ended up with a screen that looks like this…




Bitness Filename
x64 SQLServer2014SP1-KB3058865-x64-ENU.exe
 x32 SQLServer2014SP1-KB3058865-x86-ENU.exe




Needing to do a manual install, I know I need to extract the exe file.




My go to compress file extractor is 7-Zip.
