Tutorial :Is it possible to unzip .ZIP file using .BAT command on Windows XP?


Is it possible to unzip .ZIP file using .BAT command on Windows XP? we have file.zip how to create a .BAT commands file to unzip\unpack it to some folder. USING ONLY NATIVE WINDOWS XP programms and commands.

So.. How to do such thing? (code example, please)



But it involves using "scripting" and the use of System.FileSystemObject (a good keyword). You should be able to use cscript/WSH which can run VBScript or JScript (WSH 5.6 comes with XP). The general idea is here. There are some other interesting "issues" with this approach though; the operations runs asynchronously and the compression dialog box may appear -- but it can be done using standard XP tools.

I would recommend downloading 7-zip. It is a 200~400k standalone command-line executable (depending on version), but it requires an initial "install" to grab the executable first. You don't need the GUI to run 7-zip.


Short answer: No. Explanation: https://serverfault.com/questions/39071/does-windows-have-a-built-in-zip-command-for-the-command-line


No, there is no command line support for the native zip/unzip library that comes with windows XP. The only solution would be to use a uncompressing library.
