that could be from a cab [cabinet file] and if so the operating system should open it. [If you're using Windows XP or Windows Vista, then your operating system has built-in support for opening Cab files. They are described as "Cabinet files." Just double-click on a Cab file and it will open in Explorer, just like a folder. However, if you right-click on items in a cabinet file, you won't see all the same options you'd see for a file in a normal folder. This shows that it is not a real folder.]

expand - location of file and filename - location to expand to

eg if hpdrv.dl_ is in the i386 folder on C drive

Start Run type

expand c:\i386\hpdrv.dl c:\windows\system32

this would then place a copy of the file hpdrv.dll in the windows system32 folder
