hi, can anyone decipher what may be the problem with the error code below?  The problem is coming when trying to call a batch file, but the whole objective is to dynamically zip files while retaining their file structures.  If this is not the right approach, can you please give an example/suggestion of how best to do it?

-tia

: An exception occurred when invoking an external process.  
The cause of this exception was that: java.io.IOException: CreateProcess: 'c:\program files\winzip\wzzip' -rP 'D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\tempZips\component_20031201_153721.zip' 'D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\data\EA-6B\ICAP III\Controls and Indicat\Aft Advisory Panel\*.*' error=2.  
 
The error occurred in D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\dnldComponents\getFile.cfm: line 22
 
20 :       <!--- <cfx_ZipMan action="add" zipfile="#zipFile#" input_files="#lstFiles#"> --->
21 :       <cfexecute name="'c:\program files\winzip\wzzip'"
22 :         arguments="-rP '#zipFile#' 'D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\data\EA-6B\ICAP III\Controls and Indicat\Aft Advisory Panel\*.*'" timeOut="10">
23 :       </cfexecute>
24 :       <cfexecute name="D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\dnldComponents\execWinZip.bat" ></cfexecute>

Hi there,

Does your attribute NAME start (and end) width an " and a ' ???? if so remove the ' at the begin and end like this:

<cfexecute name="c:\program files\winzip\wzzip" arguments="-rP '#zipFile#' 'D:\WebSites\IETM_DevSite\data\EA-6B\ICAP III\Controls and Indicat\Aft Advisory Panel\*.*'" timeOut="10">

Thanks for the post references Anand - since they pointed me in the right direction, I'm accepting your comments as the answer.  The solution I found was to use the ZipFileNew UDF, which is free and can be found here: http://www.cflib.org/udf.cfm?id=744&enable=1  (Thanks to Nathan Dintenfass for the code contribution!)

Later,
