you can use launchapp to get winzip launched and to extracting Files
The command format is:
winzip32 -e [options] filename[.zip] folder
where -e is required.
options
-o and -j stand for "Overwrite existing files without prompting" and "Junk pathnames", respectively. Unless -j is specified, folder information is used.

I have just come up to this issue, where I have to install ApacheDS and Apache Tomcat and the developer wants the install to simply unzip the files instead of running their setup .exe files as Prerequisites.

So how would you do this if you do not know if the machine has winzip?
