Hi!

We have WINZIP 64-bit installed on our servers and the only OS Command  we can find is the Winzip32 Unzip Command to unzip the .zip files. We are not able to Unzip the files using Winzip 32 OS Command when we have Winzip64 installed on our servers.

Do we have any other command for Winzip 64 other than the one used for Winzip 32. We have a restriction of using only Winzip 64 on our servers.

We are trying to call the OS Command to Unzip the files in a  Control-M Job.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Looking at my machine, you can type WINZIP64 filename

WinZip needs to be in the path or you need to run c:\program files\winzip\winzip64 filename.

I believe you need the command line add-on for using winzip64 at the command line.

It's a free add-on if you have a license already.

The command line will unzip without an add-on but WinZip will open.  The add-on may allow the command without WinZip opening.

Correct, the command line add-on is required for scripting purely at the command line level or for use in batch files.

Thanks but what is the name of the add-on that's supposed to be installed and where can I find it? Could you please provide me the name of the add-on and where it can be located?

Since, we've been having issues with winzip64, they have uninstalled winzip 64 ans installed winzip32.

here's is the command that I found online and calling  at the command prompt to unzip a  winzip file.

winzip32 -e [options] filename[.zip] folder

and it throws an error "winzip 32unrecognized command"

Am I doing something wrong?

Any help on this  is greatly appreciated!

That looks correct.
What exactly is the command you're using inc. filename etc.

e.g.
winzip32 -e file.zip "c:\Temp\zipfiles"

you may need the path to the winzip file

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winzip32.exe" -e file.zip "C:\temp\zipfiles"
