Is it possible to archive Silk Performer Projects from command line?

Is it possible to archive Silk Performer Projects from command line?

One method to do this would be to use WinZip. It is necessary to have WinZip 9.0 installed and also the Command Line Add-On. This will allow you to zip and unzip files using a DOS command line shell

Additional information can be located in the following link


The Silk Performer Project must exist in the main "Projects" directory before running the following command

>zipproj.bat SilkPerformer_Project

Contents of batch File (zipproj.bat):

@echo off
REM if not already set add WinZip program to the system PATH

SET WINZIP_PATH="C:\Program Files\WinZip"
SET SILKPERF_HOME="C:\Program Files\Segue\SilkPerformer 7.0\Working"

REM Error checking, etc.

wzzip.exe -r -p %SILKPERF_HOME%\%1.zip %SILKPERF_HOME%\Projects\%1\*.*

REM now renames the file to SilkPerformer extension or .ltz
ren %SILKPERF_HOME%\%1.zip %1.ltz

This will zip up the entire project directory.
