Some programs like ark use those two and others to compress files.

Ark is the package kde-base/ark but should be already installed if you're using kde or not worth installing if you're using gnome (don't know the name of the gnome program for [de]compress...).
Seems like old msi files are like cab files so you may be able to extract it with cabextract but also seems tha newer ones are a different file format and even wine requires to use native msi unpacker. But this is more related to your other thread so, if needed, ask more about it in the other thread.
