I know almost nothing about scripting, very basic bat and vbs file use in the past so I will try my best to explain this process I am currently doing manually. I am using a windows 8.1 desktop for this. OK, here is the scenario:
I have a folder D:\DATA with 50 to 1000 password protected Zip files, zipfile.abc. Each zipfile.abc contains two files, file.def and file.ghi. Following are the steps I have been doing manually.
1. From command prompt go to D:\DATA and enter Rename *.abc to *.zip
2. Open each zip file (double click) in explorer, drag copy file.def to D:\Extract and leave file.ghi in the zip file as I don't need it. Windows prompts for password which I copied to clipboard and hit ctrl-v to enter and click OK. So password is the same for every file.
3. Once all files are extracted, go to D:\Extract and run Rename *.def *.tif
I hope someone can help me automate this process! Thanks, Rob
