Subject Command task fails with winzip command-line
Date   07/22/2007
Message When I use the Command task to unzip a password protected file the following is the Command line information that I pass:

"C:\Program Files\WinZip\wzunzip.exe" -sXXXXX

I am using the WinZip command line add-on feature called WZUNZIP the -s option is the password option and the XXXXX is the password.

The working direectory is: D:\Insight Financial Marketing\MIBank\IncomingData

Terminate process after 1 minute is set.

The problem,

The DOS window opens and the unzip process begins. The file is unzipped but control is never returned to Automize and the time of 1 minute expires without ever gaining control again.

Any suggestions.


Reply1 Hi,

Thanks for using Automize. Try using the WinCommand task and see if it gives better results. Normally WinCommand works better with windows batch files. I have not seen too much difference between Command and WinCommand tasks for .exe files but it may be an issue for the winzip executable.

Thanks that worked like a charm!
