Open Zip file to directory

Hi, experts:

Everybody knows that we do often open a zip file in the Exploring by right clik this file and choose "Extract to the foler to the name of this file".

But now I have a bunch of zip files, that is why I want to make a VB program Which can automatically do this job.

I prefer using API , no Active Control.

Any suggestions?

Try Info-Zip's Zip32.dll/Unzip32.dll which are 100% compatible with PKZip. Home Page (last time I checked).

These are free and used by a lot of applications (including Winzip I think)
