I still cannot extract a CAB file after it is fixed by DCABR, why?

If CAB data are corrupted partially, different applications, such as DCABR and WinZip may possibly use slightly different algorithms to extract the corrupted data. So if items in a CAB file are partially corrupted, it is better to extract the fixed CAB file with DCABR again. To do this, please:

    Arrow   Input your corrupted file name to 'Select CAB file to be repaired' edit box.
    Arrow   Input a filename with '.exe' extension to the 'Output fixed file as' edit box.
    Arrow   Click "Start Repair", DCABR will repair the corrupted CAB file and generate a new self-extracting CAB file for it.
    Arrow   Run the self-extracting CAB file and extract the files in it.

For example, you want to repair a file named MyFiles.cab, then if you specify the "Output fixed file as" with an '.exe' extension, for example, MyFiles_fixed.exe, DCABR will repair the CAB file and generate a self-extracting CAB file named MyFiles_fixed.exe. This self-extracting CAB file uses the same decompression engine as DCABR, so you can extract the partially corrupted items by executing it.
