rem Define folder to process and location of 7-zip exe file
set BaseDir=B:\EE\EE29072200\base
set ZipExe=c:\_pf\7-zip\7z.exe

rem If base directory not found quit
if not exist "%BaseDir%\" (
  echo.*ERROR* - Base directory not found [%BaseDir%].
  exit /b

rem If zip program not found quit
if not exist "%ZipExe%" (
  echo.*ERROR* - Zip program not found [%ZipExe%].
  exit /b

rem process each folder under the base folder
