In this post we will discuss how we can extract an .stp file and then how we can make an .stp file from the extracted files in SharePoint. We have created a custom list template which usually saves as a .stp file. After saving this .stp file we wanted to modify something in the manifest.xml file.
First you can extract the .stp file. Here I have used 7-Zip to extract it like below:
Once it is successfully extracted, you can see the manifest.xml file.
Then you can modify the file using Notepad or Notepad++ (any editor you can use). Once the modification over we can run the below command to create the .stp file again.
Here I have kept the manifest.xml file in the d drive and running the below command.
makecab.exe manifest.xml WorkflowMailTemplates.stp
Hope this will be helpful.
