I would expect that you would find something if you search. I use the freeware Cam Unzip which can be run using parameters, with options to run hidden. Despite the fact its called Cam Unzip it also zips. It's quite simple to use and I use it in an AutoIt script to make backups.

If you try it then be careful when you install it to read the options or it will set zip files to be associated with cuz.exe which is the exe Cam Unzip uses.

7Zip is another utility I've seen mentioned here a few times.

Ok use a command line utility to do the job.

Go to www.7-zip.org, download the command line version (7za.exe) and check the syntax. You can then call 7za.exe using RunWait() to unzip or zip or whatever.

There are also some UDFs for ZIP support in the 'Example Scripts' forum. Use search please.

I thought I did. I gave you an example of a utility which can be operated with parameters. So you can run it from an AutoIt script using ShellExecute or Run. You can also run it from the command line.

By setting the parameters you can extract any zip file to any folder you want.

You might want to try the standalone Phil Katz's PKUNZIP.EXE - DOS Command based version 2.04g from 1993 and only works with older 8.3 formats, but only 29,378 bytes! Make for less payload in a FileInstall situation. :)

Workaround I use: Rename file to 8.3 format, PKUnzip it, and then rename back again.

He means is there a way to unzip a file with only an AutoIt script.
