VB.net 2.0 create zip include all sub folders and files

cyberiadmin used Ask the Experts™

Could someone please give me an example project in VB.net 2.0 that creates a zip that includes all sub folders and files. Also, would like it to have a status bar with the % done. I have found a few but they are not for 2.0 or they used paid addons, etc.

a real .zip or just file compression?
if it is just compression, your can use the System.IO.Compression namespace.
