Hi,

I’m using ZIP on the Linux command line.
I would like to unzip those files in a Windows machine including MS-DOS Path

Eg.
zip –jq /tmp/test.zip /tmp/files*

Double click ZIP file under Windows machine
C:\TEMP\files…

Any idea?
Regards,

You can use the 7-Zip command line utility for that. You can get 7-Zip here:

Well, since you are using the -j option, only the file names are stored in the ZIP, no path info.  As a result, on the destination Windows system, when you open or extract the files you will need to specify the folder to place the files in.

Double clicking on Windows will only run the default program associated with ZIP files, which typically will open a UI to view the files, not automatically extract them...
