Extracting 8.0.3 HP2

I want to silently push the new 8.0.3 HP2 client out using the same
method we've used for a long time. The only files available at this
time are the setup IP files, and a single file .exe installer. In order
to push the install I need the setup files extracted from the current
install .exe so that I can set options in the various .ini files. Is
there a command line option to only extract the files?

    If running .exe installer with /? parameter doesn't reveal a suitable
    parameter you should find that starting the install will extract the setup
    files to a directory named "7z?????.tmp" (where "?????" is five
    alphanumeric characters) in your %TEMP% directory. Either that or open the
    ..exe file using 7zip.

    HTH.
