Hello,

I have the folllowing function in VB.NET using icsharp

Function Unzip(ByVal zipFile As String, ByVal UnzipToFolder As String)

        Dim nByte As Integer
        Dim s As New ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Zip.ZipInputStream(System.IO.File.OpenRead(zipFile))
        Dim entry As ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Zip.ZipEntry
        Dim Zip_Data(2048) As Byte
        Zip_Data(2048) = New Byte

        entry = s.GetNextEntry

        Do

            Dim fs As New System.IO.FileStream(System.IO.Path.Combine(UnzipToFolder, System.IO.Path.GetFileName(entry.Name)), System.IO.FileMode.Create)

            Dim bw As New System.IO.BinaryWriter(fs, System.Text.Encoding.ASCII)

            nByte = s.Read(Zip_Data, 0, Zip_Data.GetLength(0))

            While nByte > 0
                bw.Write(Zip_Data, 0, nByte)
                nByte = s.Read(Zip_Data, 0, Zip_Data.GetLength(0))
            End While

            fs.Close()
            bw.Close()
            entry = s.GetNextEntry

        Loop While Not (entry Is Nothing)

        s.Close()

    End Function

The problem with this function is that it crasehes when i have subfolders in the  zipped package. Why is that? and more importantly, HOW DO I FIX IT???

Check the IsDirectory attribute on your zip entry, and skip this entry or create corresponding directory if it is true.

Sorry, my english can be sometimes confusing.

Check the IsDirectory attribute on your zip entry, and if it is true, then skip this entry or create corresponding directory.

ok, I understand how to use the isdirectory and check the entry, but if it returns true, how do I create a corresponding directory?

You can use a function Directory.CreateDirectory (path As String)

ex.


Directory.CreateDirectory ( System.IO.Path.Combine(UnzipToFolder, System.IO.Path.GetFileName(entry.Name)) )

Still not working, im getting filez unzipped, but not in the correct structure, all the files are getting unzipped in the main folders and I dont see any subfolders getting created
This is what i tried

The structure of the package is as followed

2 folders(Compenent and Scripts)
4 files
          Folder Component (1 folder(sql) and 10 files)
                      Folder Sql (1 file)
          Folder Scripts (11 folders and 30 files)
                      Folder (each of the 11 folders have 3 files)

The unzip process must keep the same structure

Here is the redone function

 Function unzip2(ByVal zipFile As String, ByVal UnzipToFolder As String)
        Dim nByte As Integer
        Dim s As New Zip.ZipInputStream(System.IO.File.OpenRead(zipFile))
        Dim entry As Zip.ZipEntry
        Dim Zip_Data(2048) As Byte
        Zip_Data(2048) = New Byte

        entry = s.GetNextEntry

        Do

            If entry.IsDirectory Then
                System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(System.IO.Path.Combine(UnzipToFolder, System.IO.Path.GetFileName(entry.Name)))
            Else
                Dim fs As New System.IO.FileStream(System.IO.Path.Combine(UnzipToFolder, System.IO.Path.GetFileName(entry.Name)), System.IO.FileMode.Create)

                Dim bw As New System.IO.BinaryWriter(fs, System.Text.Encoding.ASCII)

                nByte = s.Read(Zip_Data, 0, Zip_Data.GetLength(0))

                While nByte > 0
                    bw.Write(Zip_Data, 0, nByte)
                    nByte = s.Read(Zip_Data, 0, Zip_Data.GetLength(0))
                End While

                fs.Close()
                bw.Close()
            End If
            entry = s.GetNextEntry


        Loop While Not (entry Is Nothing)

        s.Close()


    End Function

It sounds like you want a recursive function, but I don't see any other call to unzip2.
