I would say as a first test do the command on it's own in a DOS prompt window.  Open the command window, and do the following command line and see what it says, and if it creates the zip.

Also, you will need to use the -o command line option to place the created zip in a different folder than the working directory, so try this.

"C:\Program Files\7Zip\7z920.exe" a -tzip -oC:\Temp test.Zip C:\Temp\test.csv

Open in new window

(I'm assuming the file c:\temp\test.csv exists...)

You can get TaskUnZip from codeplex. It's great task to zip and unzip the folders/files with UI.
