Hi VBGurus,
           I want to compress a couple of files by code and I don't know how to do with in-code .... is there any way of doing it ?

I see a lot of dlls on the net, some free, some not .... but is there something that can zip files without installing any DLL ... i am developping this little tools to install on a secure server ... so I would'nt like foreign dlls installed ...


Thanks a lot!
