    in currently using windows 2003 server
    I had just installed the compress tools which comes under Windows Resource
    I'm having problem when i'm trying to compress the files in a folder at
    command prompt
    like this : compress /z e:\Original\AP\ap1batch.dat e:\temp

    during the exeution i can see the windows commad prompt executed the command
    prompt in this way

    Compressing e:\Original\AP\ap1batch.dat to
    e:\temp\e:\Original\AP\ap1batch.dat using MS-Zip compression

    after that i checked for the zip file at e:\temp & found there were no zip
    file created

    anyway to solve this?

    IIRC, compress will create a compressed file and mark it with "_". So if I
    compress mike.exe file I will get mike.ex_
