    When I use this function in my QTP code I get the following error,Do I need to do changes in order to run in QTP

    The test run cannot continue due to a syntax error.

    Syntax error

    Line (1): “Function WindowsUnZip(sUnzipFileName, sUnzipDestination)”.

  2. hi,
    While doing code copy paste from blog, make sure about single quote and double quote. just change in qtp using replace.because when you copy from blog page(web page) they are not exactly the same..

    Will it replace the folder if it already exists in the destination location?

  8. No it will not replace. you can check if file exist then delete using FSO(File system object) DeleteFile method

    when i tried to run the zip function QTP says it doesn’t recognized the Wscript object. the error i got was during run time:
    “Object required: ‘Wscript’

    Line (378): “Wscript.Sleep(500)”.”

    do you knew anything about it?


  14. Hi dana,

    it seems Wscript object is not created
    set wshshell = wscript.CreateObject(“”)
    wscript.sleep 2000
