In TCC 12.10 a simple UNZIP command with no switches ignores the destination path specification and extracts to the current directory.

C:\DOWNLOAD>ver

TCC 12.10.58 Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

C:\DOWNLOAD>*unzip test.zip c:\work cycle.btm
=> C:\DOWNLOAD\cycle.btm

C:\DOWNLOAD>

I expected the file to be extracted to c:\work but it ended up in c:\download as you can see.

Try it with out specifying a FILEname I'm assuming its failing to
INTERPRET the _space_ filename.ext

No offence intended if you pasted the command you used it might clear up
the WHERE and why

No, it fails in exactly the same way when I don't specify the filename. I
also tried adding the /E switch but that didn't help either.
