    How is your "unixroot="? Try removing it before running hpt or setting
    it to point to some non-existing drive. By default Klibc tries to run 'unzip' via sh shell. Not via %COMSPEC%.
    I tried pointing unixroot to a non-existant drive letter, no change, then tried
    using set unixroot= before running pack - still getting same results
    the one thought I did have, is it could be the processor that I am running on which is Amd Duron (1 ghz) i686 - and since I have not been able to figure how to build in arca yet, I am using pre-built binaries

    Thanks for the suggestion

    Is this the reason why there are no "\" in the path?

    Did you mean changing in config.sys? We tried that it didnt change anything...

    any ideas??

    Replace unzip with echo and add a redirection >> show_the_real_thing.txt.
    Then replace echo with pwd to see the real working directory.
    Oh wait, pwd should be there where the txt file is found.

    A workaround would be to create a unzip.cmd script that set all path manually and use that unzip.cmd in the packer definition. Bad idea because other tools could fail with the broken path too.

    No, just from the command line before running hpt.exe.
    I checked: set unixroot= does not help, but set unixroot=x: does help.

    I run in my tossing batch something like this:

    set unixroot=x:
    hpt toss

    That's how it works in my OS/2 (WSEB with libc066). Maybe the latest libc (in ArcaOS) works different?

    IIRC, from the Netlabs website I found that the order of searching shell is, first %UNIXROOT%\bin\sh, and then %COMSPEC% and so on. It was some years ago when I investigated this.

    Thank for that idea, I did create an unzip.cmd which then echo the cmdline to a
    log file...
    the problem, was not using \\ in the hptconfig
    I had C:\DB\INBOUND where it should have been C:\\DB\\INBOUND\\

    Thank you everyone for your help
