unshield problem

hi, Im relatively new to linux and Im using suse 9.3. I installed unshield via rpm and when I try to run it via the terminal on a cab file (from a driver installation) it fails. I tried the same file with cabextract for microsoft cab files and it said the file was a install shield file. I tried lots of different options but it doesnt matter what it does. It blankly says it cant open it. I'll have to get the specific error tomorrow morning, but its not very helpful. ive tried a ton of stuff to make sure its being pointed at the right file etc, and Im sure its looking at the cab file.

I basicly cd-ed to the directory containing the cab file, ad then:
unshield x

Ive tried entering the complete path, and also using *.* as the filenameafter which is points to and tells me it cant use the file. argh.

Can anyone help with this problem? When I compiled it gave me errors with zlib, so I had to use a rpm.

Alternatively what would work is a windows version of the program.
