I'm writting something with VB where I need to untar a archive containing images.

I was wondering if there was a component I can use or if anyone has a solution that they have used for this type of problem before.

Your best bet is probably to call an external application like Winzip Command Line utility and make it hidden.

Also, take a look at these controls:

Actually winzip command line utility was one of the first external utilities I checked out, I couldn't find the untar option though. And when trying to extract without any options I got an error.

If I could find the options to untar then I will be set. :)

My apologies for being non-responsive. I have accepted the answer.

Just a note: I ended up using the tar binary for windows (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/tar.htm)
