    cannot extract .exe by using cabextract

    halo.... i did downloaded a cabextract-1.1.tar.gz from :

    I am trying to install ndiswrapper (
    and it is required a window driver to support it.

    I did found a window driver from this link:

    When i tried to extract the 1rwc89ww.exe, there is an error message shown in terminal :
    [root@hb2b-130 1rwc89ww]# cabextract 1rwc89ww.exe
    1rwc89ww.exe: no valid cabinets found

    All done, errors in processing 1 file(s)

    You should be able to use wine to extract it. It is more than likely not a driver directly, but a self-extracting archive. Once you install/configure wine just run
    cd /location/of/driver.exe
    wine driver.exe
    sunstituting path/filename accordingly.
