This is the code, the filenames exists but when i try to copy from the compressed file to the normal file it doesn't work, the return from de lzcopy-command is oke (number of bytes copied) but the filesize of the new normal file is still 0 bytes
I think i'am doing something wrong when i close the normal file, can anybody help me ????

CFile = compressed file
NFile = the new to be uncompressed file

CFile.cBytes = 136
CFile.fFixedDisk = True
CFile.szPathName = strSrcName
hCFile = OpenFile(strSrcName, CFile, OF_READWRITE)
hCFile = LZInit(hCFile)
NFile.cBytes = 136
NFile.fFixedDisk = True
NFile.szPathName = "C:\temp\" & sFile.strDestName
hNFile = OpenFile("C:\temp\" & sFile.strDestName, NFile, OF_CREATE)
Ret = LZCopy(hCFile, hNFile)
LZClose (hCFile)
CloseHandle (hNFile)

Whoops, the FileAttr can't be used to retrieve a filehandle anymore...
