Is there an app out there that can unzip 3000 zip files in a batch process.  I tried pkunzip from a command window but it doesn't support long file names.  Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Yes... try WinRAR along with the command suplement... I have great experience with it... you can create a compression file, verify it and do a lot of things with it...
The link(s):
http://www.rarsoft.com/
For WinRAR software.

http://www.rarsoft.com/download.htm
Checkout the GUI and command line interface for Windows...

You may also try out a great freeware (Yap... totlly free): 7-Zip... it supports numerous file and compression types and it supports command prompt for heavy duty...

"I tried pkunzip from a command window but it doesn't support long file names"

Not true. Pkunzip supports LFN in DOS window. I used 2.50 version to test it. Maybe you are using old version?

Winzip 9 has a commandline add-on which works nicely with long filenames

Unfortunately Winzip is not freeware.  The old version (2.0) of Power Archiver Command Line is freeware and compatible with zip.  See:
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/cdexos/cdex_tools/pacl20.exe?rev=1.1

This has long file name support (I just tested it then).


If you want the GUI version too, the old version 6.11 of Power Archiver is freeware, you can get it from
http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=powerc
