Ensure that CABARC.EXE and related files exist in %zenworks_home%\zpm directory.
If these files are missing or out of date,  uninstall and reinstall the ZENworks agent.   Note:  CABARC is installed as part of novell-zenworks-patch-management-agent-*.msi .  Simply repairing this msi may resolve the situation (msiexec /fa ).

Additional Information

CABARC is the redistributable CAB file extraction tool from Microsoft. It is used to unpack the PLS files so that they can be analyzed on the device.
