LKBEN11523: Unzip a file with powershell


You need to copy the contents of a zip file to another location


Needed for automation


To copy and extract a zip file to a directory, you can use the Expand-Archive command.

Here we copy the contents of the OpenJDK file into a directory:

$targetDir = "C:\program files\OpenJDK"
Expand-Archive '.\' -DestinationPath $targetDir

Have fun.
