Create VB.Net applcation to unzip into a folder without using a tthird party DLL?

Hi ALL!!!!


I am Selvam...

I have the doubt!

I used System.IO.Packaging & System.IO.Compression to make zip files...

Similarly Can we do Unzip with that above packages?

Without any third party DLL is it possible to create to unzip files into a folder which I specified?

Heh, impossible :)  It's a piece of cake!
Add reference to Microssoft Shell and Automation (COM)

    Private Sub Unzip(ByVal destFolder As String, ByVal srcZip As String)
        Dim oShell As New Shell32.Shell
        Dim oDestFolder As Shell32.Folder
        If Not System.IO.Directory.Exists(destFolder) Then
            System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(destFolder)
        End If
        oDestFolder = oShell.NameSpace(destFolder)
        oDestFolder.CopyHere(oShell.NameSpace(srcZip).Items)
        oDestFolder = Nothing
        oShell = Nothing
    End Sub

The .NET Framework includes GZipStream and related classes, but they only support compression, not the standard ZIP file structure. This article explains how you can handle correctly zipping and unzipping folders and files including using a zip password
