Windows 2003 zip from command line [duplicate]

Is there a way to zip a file (or group of files) from the command line using Windows 2003? I'd prefer to use built-in commands if possible.

"I'm not sure it's possible to do it from the command line using only built-in commands. But you can use 7-Zip from the command line; the great thing about 7-Zip is that it's free and open-source.

Here's a quick tutorial on using the 7-Zip CLI. Hope this helps you out!"

"Using zip and unzip on the Windows command line

And no, you can't use the 'integrated' Windows ZIP functionality from the commandline."
