Using 7zip command line version, I need to extract a .7z file with full paths but excluding the first folder level within the archive.

I thought that this command below would work but it still extracts the "chrome-win32" folder instead of its content.

7z x "chromium.7z"  -o"C:\Apps\1\chromium\"  -ir!"chrome-win32\*"  -y

I believe you're missing \ before *. This way it matches only chrome-win32 folder. Also be avare that * does not match files starting with . – week Nov 19 '13 at 19:42
@week: The \ was actually there all along, but Super User wasn’t displaying it. – Scott Nov 19 '13 at 20:23

I guess this is cheating, but it would work....

7z x chromium.7z -o"C:\Apps\1\" -y && move "c:\Apps\1\chrome-win32" "c:\Apps\1\chromium"
