seems to work fine Compress-Archive is only available with PS v4 onwards.
Check your powershell version using $PSVersionTable as you'll likely still be on PS v2 with Windows 7 unless you've upgraded WMF.
powershell -ExecutionPolicy unrestricted -Command "$PSVersionTable"

PowerShell Compress-Archive By File Extension

Tag : powershell , By : George H.

I hope this helps you . I would suggest copying the files to a temporary directory and compress that. Ex:
$path = "test"
$filter = "*.config"

#To support both absolute and relative paths..
$pathitem = Get-Item -Path $path

#If sourcepath exists
if($pathitem) {
    #Get name for tempfolder
    $tempdir = Join-Path $env:temp "CompressArchiveTemp"

    #Create temp-folder
    New-Item -Path $tempdir -ItemType Directory -Force | Out-Null

    #Copy files
    Copy-Item -Path $pathitem.FullName -Destination $tempdir -Filter $filter -Recurse

    #Get items inside "rootfolder" to avoid that the rootfolde "test" is included.
    $sources = Get-ChildItem -Path (Join-Path $tempdir $pathitem.Name) | Select-Object -ExpandProperty FullName

    #Create zip from tempfolder
    Compress-Archive -Path $sources -DestinationPath config-files.zip

    #Remove temp-folder
    Remove-Item -Path $tempdir -Force -Recurse

wish help you to fix your issue I am attempting to create a zip from from a folder using powershell 5 on Windows 10. After looking at this stackoverflow post I am trying out the Compress-Archive method. , This message can appear if the folder you are compressing is empty.

Windows 10 powershell ise compress-archive files at root .in .zip

it fixes the issue With your -Path being a folder you explicitly include it in the archive.
As already mentioned by Tomalak giving a wildcard changes that.
Compress-Archive -Path C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\* -DestinationPath C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\myZip.zip
Compress-Archive C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\* C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\myZip.zip
Get-ChildItem C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\* -File | Compress-Archive C:\wamp64\www\myFolder\myZip.zip

Exclude sub-directories from Compress-Archive Powershell Cmd

I think the issue was by ths following , I apologize in advance if this question seems odd, this is my first time trying to use powershell for anything like this. , Here's a possible option (what i meant by my comment)
$entries = New-Object System.Collections.Generic.List[System.Object] 

$exclude = "DIR2,DIR6"

# Get initial directory listing
$dirlist = Get-ChildItem $solutionFileLocation -ad -Exclude "$exclude" | ForEach-Object { $_.FullName }

# Exclude bin and obj directories and add entry path to our zip entry list
foreach ($dir in $dirlist)
    $sub = Get-ChildItem $dir -Exclude "bin", "obj" | ForEach-Object { $_.FullName }

    foreach ($itm in $sub)

Compress-Archive -LiteralPath $entries -CompressionLevel Optimal -DestinationPath "C:\Filename01212019.zip"

How can I loop through specific file names with the Compress-Archive command in Windows PowerShell?

wish helps you I am not too familiar with Windows PowerShell (and Windows console commands in general), but I wish to write a batch file which can create sperated .zip archives from specific files in a folder, then delete all but the .zip files. So, I have a folder as "C:\myfolder\" and some files in it like: myfile0001.a myfile0001.b myfile0001.c myfile0002.a myfile0002.b myfile0002.c myfile0003.a myfile0003.b myfile0003.c ... and so on. , In PowerShell, you could do:
Get-ChildItem -Path 'C:\myfolder' -File | Where-Object { $_.BaseName -match 'myfile\d{4}' } | Group-Object BaseName | ForEach-Object {
    $target = Join-Path -Path ($_.Group[0].DirectoryName) -ChildPath ('{0}.zip' -f $_.Group[0].BaseName)
    $_.Group | Compress-Archive -CompressionLevel Optimal -DestinationPath $target
    $_.Group | Remove-Item -Force
powershell -Command "& {Get-ChildItem -Path 'C:\myfolder' -File | Where-Object { $_.BaseName -match 'myfile\d{4}' } | Group-Object BaseName | ForEach-Object { $target = Join-Path -Path ($_.Group[0].DirectoryName) -ChildPath ('{0}.zip' -f $_.Group[0].BaseName); $_.Group | Compress-Archive -CompressionLevel Optimal -DestinationPath $target; $_.Group | Remove-Item -Force}}"
