Windows 7: 64 bit command line unzip utility

64 bit command line unzip utility

So...I got this new computer in at work.
7pro, 64 bit, quad core AMD X4 B95.
No biggie, but a small step up from my 7 month old X2 B22 processor work rig, which was 32 bit.

I need a command line unzip utility that works with 64 bit OS.

Previously I used pkunzip and funzip utilities and it worked perfect...

I get lost in the shareware, scamware, etc., trying to find something that will work.
Something easy, all I want.

You'll find that you can download a command line version of Winrar

WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files

32bit software should still work in a 64bit os.

have you tried pkunzip or funzip on your new machine?

Yep...and I get errors. I tried to figure out Winrar, problem is when it unzips files it renames them incorrectly (for us to use and import into Oracle).

Here's the exact error message I receive:

This version of C:\Windows\system32\pkunzip.exe is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your
computer's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.

My brain is fried...been working on this all day.
It used to be as simple as a simple command line, such as funzip *.* or pkunzip *.* once I was in the folder I needed to be via command prompt.
I'll work on this more tomorrow...thanks for the help.
