Hi to all,
problem: several hundreds of compressed files (.zip stored in a tree
structure under the file system) to be unzipped.
I would avoid to manually do the works, is it possible to invoke unzip tool
included in WinXp by command line?
If Yes, how?

I also could consider to turn to another sw (free) supporting that feature
Thanks in advance,
G.R.

What?
Sorry but I'm not in a position to understand your "code".
What is it? It's simply a batch file (DOS)? That is I just to create a .bat
file, insert your code and run it?
What it will be the results?
I only understand your code will affect registry key but I didn't understand
how and how that modify will resolve my problem.

please give me some further information before starting use your code,
thanks a lot.
G.R.

I changed it a bit. Usuage

Unzip.vbs zipfile extractfolder
EG
unzip "c:\Documents And Settings\myzip.zip" "c:\my folder"

Copy the lines into a text document (eg notepad) and name the file
unzip.vbs

The destination folder must exist. It will create any subfolders.
