    I am trying to invoke the tar.exe in the following way (as this is my requirement), i.e My tar.exe in different location and my abc.tar is in entirely different location. How do I extract this abc.tar which is in different location. I tried -C <dir> option but it expects <dir> to be the subdirectory of the current directory. 
My tar.exe is in : c:\venky\NewTest\
My abc.tar is in : c:\tartest\
C:\Venky>c:\venky\NewTest\tar -xvf c:\tartest\abc.tar
C:\VENKY\NEWTEST\TAR.EXE: Cannot open c:\tartest\abc.tar: Function not implement
C:\VENKY\NEWTEST\TAR.EXE: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
    Please let me know if this is a bug or I am missing something. I am using tar which I downloaded from the following location http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tar.htm
PS: Please let me know or forward this question to the right alias, if this is not the correct alias to discuss this issue.
