Extract EXE-Drivers from Sony, HP, ... (Win 7, ...)
Sometimes you download .EXE drivers from Sony, HP, ... that cannot be installed on certain systems or that contain a lot of software from which you want to install only one component. To extract a driver from such an EXE-archive, the tool "Universal Installer" is very helpful.

I'll show this process with an example:
I had to install Flash Card Reader Driver (Win 7) on a Toshiba Satellite A100-018. Toshiba does not offer this driver for Win 7.

First I had to download this Driver from Sony:

When trying to install this driver, it says this driver cannot install on this system, because it is no Sony notebook. At this point, download and install Universal Extractor from:

After it is installed, right click on the sony .EXE driver and chose "Extract here". Voila the driver is extracted and can now be installed by using Windows Hardware browser.
