    Use [7zip|http://www.7-zip.org/] if it is available for your platform - it also has a command line client ("p7zip -d /path/to/archive.exe").

    Hello Hussain,

    CanĀ“t you use the unzip command? Have you tried it? have you tried with the gzip command?

    gunzip -S .ZIP filename.ZIP

    I hope this helps you.

    Regards,

    Blanca

    Sounds like a self-extracting compressed file.... I think the best will be to run the executable in your PC before transfering the files.

    Regards

    Hello, 

    There is a SAP Note: 886535 - Downloading multispanning archives (RAR archive)  that indicates the way of extracting the .exe files.

    In the 'Info File' link of the multispan files, at the top of the popup window, there is a red warning message with that info.

    Windows:

    You trigger the unpacking for Windows platforms when you start the .exe file. The unpacking should be possible on all Windows PC or Windows Server versions. In the case of problems, follow the process for other platforms.

    Other platforms: 

    Unix: customers must install the latest Download Manager in order to download the files to the Unix platform correctly. The files must be unpacked using the root user. Unrar is required for these other platforms (Linux, Solaris, AIX, Tru64, HP-UX).

    The command:  unrar xtriggers the unpacking process. The data is unpacked to the current directory.

    The command: unrar -h displays further options.

    Kind regards.
