I'm trying to extract the files from the Google Chrome offline installer as a reverse engineering exercise
So I tried extracting the data inside the installer PE. I tried pestudio which showed me two large embedded resources, however, pestudio had no option to dump them. Extracting the PE with 7-zip shows a file with the name
However, 7zip cannot make out anything out of the
~102 file. Viewing this file with a hex editor shows that it is a tar archive with around 20 bytes of additional info prepended to it. Removing these 20 bytes does not make it extractable, however.
How can I extract the files from the binary?
I'm a complete noob in reverse engineering, so please correct my mistakes instead of downvoting my question. I'd also be grateful if someone can tell me of a tool which can extract such data from PE executables (instead of my very questionable use of 7-zip for this purpose which also fails for a large number of executables).
