Hi
I am using this for unzipping, but am having a prob.
It unzips ok, but in the VB5 main directory, though the file3.path is another.
How can I control the destination directory??
The code goes here;

      filnavn = File3.Filename
      f = FreeFile
          Open filnavn For Random As f
       c = Shell("pkunzip.exe " & File3.Path & "\" & filnavn, vbHide)

pkunzip syntax is:

pkunzip.exe [flags] zipfile [output path]

If the output path is not there, it sends the files to the current path, which is the vb5 main dir.  To cure this:

c = shell("pkunzip.exe " & file3.path & "\" & fillnavn & " " & file3.path, vbHide)


On anothe rnote, why did you open the zip file for random access?   you dont need to do that unless you intend on reading the zip file directly
