I have several programs zipped into a self  extracting exe format  [ done in winzip [win 3.1]16bit ] called "xyz.exe"
What coding do I use [ in vb5 ] for a command button to unpack this file. I use the following code

dim retval
retval = shell("c:/test/xyz.exe", 1)
Nothing happens
is the 16 vs 32 bit the problem?.
