    Winzip


    Hi,

    Is it possible to reference Winzip from within a VB application that I am
    writing? I need to automatically create archive files from programs that
    I am writing and the only way I have been able to do it so far is by the
    old dos method.

    Regards


    Rob.

    Re: Winzip

    There are a number of ZIP custom controls available. I'd check those out.

    Hi Rob,

    At http://www.vbaccelerator.com/ under code>libraries>compression there is
    excellent sample VB code that wraps a library called InfoZip.

    InfoZip is a freeware compression library - as a matter of fact the same
    "engine" used at least in part by WinZip (See the About>Acknowledgements in
    WinZip).

    I've succesfully adapted the vbaccelerator code to accomplish what you're
    looking for and it honestly took only a few hours.

    HTH,
