I'll trying to migrate away from Simply Accounting and need to somehow extract the contents of a Windows CAB file which is what Simply uses for backups.

Double click on the cab file. You will be told that it can't be displayed, but that not actually true. Press
Now you can handle cab files like zip or rar files. You can use the "Extract here" right click option or double click to open in Archive Manager.
