Specs: Windows 7
I need to create a batch file which will accept the 2 paramaters. First parameter will be path of the file which needs to be zip and second will be path of header file which i need to copy in the same zip file. How to do that?
Currently I am using "7z.exe u -tzip classics -r" but i need to pass the file path in the command line

✔ Best Answer
SET PATH=%PATH%;path to zip file

will add the path to zip file (where you fill in the specific path) to the existing path in a command prompt session. When you close the command prompt window the path will revert to its previous value.

c:\>> test.bat <<Path1>> <<Path2>>
Where in batch file i need to use
7z.exe u -tzip C:\abhay\ <<Path1>>
so currently I am using >7z.exe u -tzip C:\abhay\ %1
But its giving error like "7z.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command"

It's telling you it doesn't know where 7z.exe is. You're providing a path to but not to 7z.exe. If for example it's in the same directory as the command line would be:

c:\abhay\7z.exe u -tzip C:\abhay\ %1
