    7-Zip 15.09 beta now opens Install.esd archive

    The Electronic Software Distribution (.esd) file generally replaces the Windows Image file (.wim) format for Windows preview updates, and the decryption required to view the contents has been handled by very few general programs or file managers.

    Although not documented, I believe, the 15.09 beta version of 7-Zip can open Install.esd from Build 10576 professional, so I imagine It will also open other and earlier versions:
