Unpack a tar.gz file

Hello All,

Has anyone had any success trying to unpack a tar.gz file within Thingworx?  I am working on a project where tar.gz files are being uploaded by the device and so far I have been unsuccessful at unpacking them in Thingworx. Thank you!

Hi Brian, is this a specific problem with the tar.gz archive or it can be extended to other archive types ?

I am thinking that you can trigger one of the unpacking commands via a Cron job or a Scheduled task.

Let me know if this helps.

Our problem is specifically with tar.gz files, but I'm sure others might encounter this with other archive types.  Are you saying there is a way within a mashup or with a service to extract these?  I looked at the link you provided and am not quite sure how to apply that to within Thingworx. Thanks!
