Nope. In our version, the above command (with an existing file name
in place of your example name) results in the help being displayed and
the message "The name specified is not recognized as an internal or external
command..." appended.

Anyways, enough about PKZip. David Castro sent me email suggesting PowerDesk
(see http://www.mijenix.com) which according to him "replaces Explorer in
Win95, and handles all zipping/unzipping almost transparently."

Probably worth checking out if you haven't already acquired WinZip.
