Hi, I have been trying for hours to unzip a file after downloading it.

I used several examples of Powershell scripts I found on the net to extract a zip file but none of them worked and nothing was extracted.

Is there a restriction on appveyor that prevents this ? In the negative, how would you do that ?

Thanks for your help.

    Just use 7z (7-Zip) command which is already available in PATH!
