I am trying to unzip a file but get an access denied error.

I'm running (resin) in administrator mode on Windows. I am able to create files and folders, but my code fails here:
out = new FileOutputStream(entryDestination);

The error looks like:

*** Folder created: C:\Users\myUser\foodticket\icaste
*** EntryDestination: C:\Users\myUser\foodticket\icaste C:\Users\myUser\foodticket\icaste (access denied)
at Method)
at module.driver.icaste.ICaste.unZipIt(
at module.driver.icaste.ICaste.downloadZippedDriverPackage(

Looking in Windows path finder the folder "icaste" is created properly:

Any help would be appreciated, please.

It looks to me like you're trying to unzip icaste, which is a folder, not a zip file.
I agree. Here's the link:
