unable to unzip zipx file with tFileUnarchive component

I have a job I am working on where I need to go get a large zip file (.zipx format), save it to a shared windows network drive location, unzip the file, then load it to a SQL database. When I run the first part of the job where I copy the zipx file over to the shared drive location, the file get moved over no problem, but I get the following warning when the tFileUnarchive component runs and the file does not get unzipped to the designated location:

 

unsupported feature method 'PPMD' used in entry USA18.txt

 

fyi USA18.txt is the name of the output text file. I looked all over the internet and can’t find anything about this error or even about zipx and whether it is compatible with the tfileunarchive component. I have unzipped the file using winzip and had no issue. The rest of the job runs fine but I am stuck unless I can figure out how to perform the unzip operation. I am using Talend Open Studio 7.0.1 on a windows 10 laptop. If there is a way around this using another component or other work around, I am happy to try it. Thanks in advance for any guidance!

Can you  load latest version of  commons-compress-*.jar (1.17 or 18) and load it with tLibrary load . 

 

https://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-compress/download_compress.cgi

 

and try .

Thank you for your suggestion! I downloaded commons-compress-1.18.jar and used a tLibraryLoad component to load it then trigger the tFileUnarchive component to try to unzip it. However, I am getting the same error message as before:

 

unsupported feature method 'PPMD' used in entry USA18.txt

You might have to do some java coding.

Or call winzip command using tsystem
