cfexecute problem

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?

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.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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,
