Mostly guessing here ...
Are you reading the outputs of the zip program? If not, there may be messages there that you are missing.
Any chance the zip contains paths and is putting the files somewhere you don't expect?
Have you looked into the Zip streams? You can read the zip file to extract the members and write them anywhere you like. Can't say if that would be a good idea or not.
Let me know if any of that helps.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
