Winzip15 CMD line tool not working properly........~~!!!!

Hello folks, i am using Winzip v15 and the command line versions for making batch files, i usually make batch files to save

the game user data, i used this command

wzzip -a -p -r -el Wildtangent.zip "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\WildTangent"
EXIT

-a: Add files (default action).
-p: Store folder names. A lower case p stores only the names of folders recursed (subfolders included) via the -r option,

while an upper case P stores all folder information specified on the command line or in the listfile. Use with the -r

option.
-P:Store folder names. A lower case p stores only the names of folders recursed (subfolders included) via the -r option,

while an upper case P stores all folder information specified on the command line or in the listfile. Use with the -r

option.
-r: Recurse into subfolders (include subfolders). This option requires the -p or -P option.
-el: maximum (PPMd) (requires WinZip 10.0 or later, WinZip Command Line Support Add-On 2.0 or later, or compatible Zip

utility to extract)

so by using the -p switch i can only backup the the content inside the folder structure %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application

Data\WildTangent and
using the -P switch backups the entire directory structure %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\WildTangent .
But i want only the folder WildTangent present in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\ to be backed up or archived : so this

winzip command line is not working or is not too flexible like Winrar commandline version. Since this folder contains lots

of file (around 90 mb ) raring bought it to 48 mb and zipping around 44 mb so zipping or 7zipping works well with folders

contaning a lot of files inside some folder. But not too well when archiving some setup.exe programs, i observed this a

hundred of times.

But my problem is zipping only a specified file present in any directory, not the content inside of the folder or the

entire directory structure but only a folder of my choosing , hope my problem is understood. Is their a fix to this, or it

may be a good time for the people behind WINZIP to work a fix for this, its kind of like one dimensional, black or white no

grey area.

No one who's seen this yet it seems. I read your post, but have never even used Winzip myself. Hopefully someone will see this who has. A Guy
