Hi

I am trying to unzip a file with .zip extension using winzip application. I am using windows command prompt to do this.

I am able to unzip files if I do not have spaces in the file name.

For Example: samplefile.zip will work where as  sample file.zip will not work.

here is the command:

C:\Program Files (x86)\WinZip>winzip32.exe -e -o C:\data\Sample Data.zip

When I do this, it tries to find a file with sample, leaving the rest of the file name.

I also tried doing this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\WinZip>winzip32.exe -e -o C:\data\"Sample Data.zip"


Can anyone please help me with a work around ?

Thanks in advance!!!
