Kindly give me the below inputs:

1. What is the exact error you are encountering..
2. What permission do you have on that server
3. Do you have any software like Winzip or winrar installed in that server

The reason I was asking is because I am able to unzip a compressed file in Windows Server 2008 without any additional software installation in the machine..

Error message when I tried to unzip the folder.

Window cannot open the folder.
The Compressed(zipped) Folder 'C:\Software\zip.zip' is invalid

It means that you have downloaded the zip.zip from internet which is either incomplete or damaged or is corrupted.
Try downloading the file again from a good source which would help you fix that issue.

I didn't get what you meant above..
Kindly clarify in more detail..

If you meant you are not able to download zip file in Windows Server 2008, then it was with respect to the local security policies applicable on your Server machine.

Yes, it would be UAC most of the times.. And FYI, there are few settings in Windows Server 2008 related to Security which we can't change it out.
And since the file in downloaded from Internet, it should be first unlocked.. (Right Click the zip file -> Choose Properties -> Unblock the file)
Now try extracting it...

Do copy the same file to a Win 7 or Vista machine and try extracting whether it works or not..
