Extracting files from an MSI package

Reminder to self, as I have searched for this too many times:

How to extract files from an MSI file without actually installing it:

msiexec /a c:downloadsWCFRestStarterKit.msi /qb TARGETDIR=c:RESTStarterKit

Run this from an elevated command prompt. The target directory does not have to be created beforehand.
