There's a way to unzip files with .7z extension?
I try changing the extension to .zip but I have the error:
ERROR [8098 - Unzip] The central directory was not found

The 7zip .7z format is a proprietary format and is used solely by the 7zip application to compress/decompress files. Within GoAnywhere we can accommodate unzipping these files by utilizing the execute native command task to call 7zip so that it can unpack these files.
