I just downloaded a file that is a self extracting archive. When i try to open it, it is unable to extract, it says the following

 

0 cannot open file 'd:/myst 3-exile.exe' as archive

 

Anyone know how to fix this?

7Zip cannot open that because it's an .exe file(executable NOT readable),

 

you have to right click it, look down for 7-Zip and then click open archive, you then can view the contents of the executable file. 

 

if it's still unable to open it, just run it normally.

I tried both of those but I had no luck.

I don't know if this would work in your case but I have extracted files from exe installers using Universal Extractor.
