Calling wzunzip or winzip32 and I get "The system cannot find the file specified"

(OP)
I have been struggling with this for two days. No matter what I do, I get this error "The system cannot find the file specified."

So, I simplified the process to rule out any errors I may had made. Originally, it was in for each loop and I was using variables to pass in the file name and other information. Nothing I did worked, so I created a new SSSI package with nothing but Execute Process Task with the following information:

Executable: C:\Program Files (x86)\WinZip\wzunzip.EXE
Arguments: -e c:\test.zip c:\

That's it and I am still getting this error, "The system cannot find the file specified"

I was missing quotes.

This is how I got it to work.

-e "c:\test.zip" "C:\"
