Working with ZIP files under Win XP

Hi,

when I do the following:

...
SHFILEINFO shfi;
SHGetFileInfo("c:\file.zip", 0, &shfi, sizeof(SHFILEINFO), SHGFI_ATTRIBUTES);
if(shfi.dwAttributes & SFGAO_FOLDER)
{
 //I am getting here

...

In other words Win XP handles zip files as folders. How one can determine under Win XP if folder is a zip file without disabling XP's zip handler? I tried the following:

if(shfi.dwAttributes & SFGAO_FOLDER && !(shfi.dwAttributes & SFGAO_COMPRESSED)
...

but this does not work.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

//..
}
