      Hi Phillip,

      It worked for me with the WinZip 8.0 and commandline interface.
      It either comes with it or there should be a free version. I'm
      using WinZip 9 SR-1 now and it still works and I did not pay
      extra for the command-line utility. We have to go off topic list
      or private eMail with this now.
