WHAT IS .CAB/CABINET FILE?
A cabinet is a single file, usually with a .cab extension, that stores compressed files in a file library. The cabinet format is an efficient way to package multiple files.
There’s many drivers, including some windows update files are redistributed in as .CAB file format. Basically there’s no problem with Windows Updates files in .MSU format cause it’s executable like normal software which can be installed directly. But installing .CAB is somewhat different, you can’t install it directly just by clicking on it.
Well, over the internet there’s various methods available to install .CAB files, some are difficult to understand for ordinary users, some are too outdated.
