    Can anyone tell me how to unpack a .cab file on my Mac? I've downloaded a Break Even chat template for Excel and desperately have to get it working today as the hand in date for my uni work is tomorrow morning!

    Thanks,
    Sacred

    Also, I never ended up buying this program, but it's quite impressive... File Juicer has a pretty wide range of abilities in terms of pulling stuff out of files. I used it a few times to unpack Windows Mobile installation files, when I had a WM handheld, so that I could transfer the actual program to the handheld from my Mac (since otherwise the files needed a Win PC to install, and at the time, I did not have one).

    I use The Unarchiver personally. I don't know how its feature set compares with File Juicer, and the link isn't opening for me, maybe because I'm using a VPN connection at the moment. The Unarchiver doesn't appear to be able to handle .cab files, though.

    Well I've got no money so had to settle for leaving it out of the project, hopefully wont lose too many marks!

    Well if I even get it handed in got another problem now.

    StuffIt Expander is free and should be able to open them.

    But you don't need Deluxe, just Expander. Get it here.
