CabMaker icon A simple GUI for the command-line Makecab utility included in Windows, making it easier to quickly package an entire folder into a CAB file

A utility for packing data into CAB files is included in Windows, but it can only be used from the command console, which involves more work that some users would like. Thankfully, there are programs out there that can make this job easier.

CabMaker is one of them, a very simple application that provides you with a straightforward way to package an entire folder, with its subfolders, into a CAB file. It doesn’t support every option offered by the Makecab utility, and it features a rudimentary UI, but it is very easy to use.

Great tool for quickly creating CAB archives

If you’re working on a project and need to create either CAB, WSP or XSN files as quickly as possible, CabMaker can certainly help you out. It greatly simplifies the whole process, so you can get everything done with just a few mouse clicks.

Once you’ve launched the application, you only need to select the source and target folder and set the output file’s name. To make things easier later on, you can also have the program remember your settings.

No-nonsense CAB creator that serves as a simple GUI for the Makecab utility

It is important to note that this application does not allow you to use every function supported by the Windows Makecab utility. It only offers the most basic options, but you can always grab the source code and add anything else you need yourself.

After selecting the source files and configuring the job, you can keep track of its progress from the Output field. When the operation is completed, a complete log will be displayed, which also lists the compression ratio.

Overall, CabMaker certainly gets the job done, provided you only need a tool that lets you create a CAB file quickly and have no need for other options. It is very user-friendly, enabling you to launch a job in just a few seconds.
