Extracting a zip file on the Gallery

Highlighted

Hi Folks,

 

I have a macro I use for zip extraction locally, but am trying to emulate it on a private gallery. Right now it leverages 7-zip, but that can't be done on the gallery, so wanted to see if there were other options out there (R? Python?). I haven't had luck with the dynamic input tool either.

 

Any suggestions welcome!

Hi @mgelberg ,

 

Why doesn't 7-zip work in your gallery? Due to run command permissions in your company's gallery? I could be mistaken, but I remember using 7zip in gallery before.

The command I have currently runs it locally, how would you replicate this on the Gallery?

 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\7-Zip\7z.exe" e "C:\Users\GELB001\AppData\Local\Temp\3\Engine_35896_7eaf35b675a64428b9a25bfc1d95b913_\Engine_11496_f85e075eda9a4239a6a3a0b4a3d1c596_.tmp"

Hi @mgelberg ,

 

I would put 7zip on a shared folder where server would be able to also see and call. And do the same with your log files folder. 

 

Best,
