Hello Experts

My application generates a folder of folder and files. To distribute these, the user currently has to zip the master folder by invoking a zip app indendepently of my VB6 app.

I'm looking for a zip file generator that I can integrate with my app so that it automatically makes a zip of the master folder and its contents.

Your recommendations please

    Once I'd figured out taht the associated dll doesn't register with REGSVR32 and apparently doesn't need to, the sample works fine and seems to be exactly what I'm looking for

    Thank you
