Another great tool for extracting all files contained within an MSI package is Universal Extractor.
it has a huge supported file list and can extract files of type: exe, msi, zip, rar, cab, tar ... etc

It can be run from stand alone or via a Windows context menu from explorer.

Download it here.

A simple but great tool is MSI Viewer. It allows you to view the contents of MSI files.
As can be seen from the screenshot, you can view the Summary Info, Properties, Files and Registry details contained within the MSI file.

Download MSI Viewer here.
