I have zipped files using the dos version of zip - pkzip - from VB. Pkzip is completely controlled by command line parameters that you include when you use shell to execute pkzip.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can also try:

DynaZip32, a WinZip-compatible OCX available from Inner Media.

- OR -

CompressionPlus, a WinZip-compatible OCX available from EllTech Development.

Good luck,
