WinZip 15 filenames

I have an Access database that uses WinZip to send files to me (and back to the client).  Up until now this has worked fine.  However, it looks like WinZip have change the main filenames on V15.  Does anyone know what the new names of the following two files.

It's the Winzip file and the Command line add-on.

C:\Program Files\WinZip\WZZIP.EXE
C:\Program Files\WinZip\WZCLINE.DLL

Thanks guys.

Is the functionality to send the files in Winzip or an external utility?
Are you using any special functionality that only winzip provides?

Ever since Win XP, I have dumped using Winzip in favor of the built in "Compressed (Zipped) Folder" utility in XP, which (for my purposes), does the same thing. (creates Zip files)

I've been using 7-Zip for quite awhile, it works great and you can't beat the price.... free for the download and has good compression.

Mine is WinZip32.exe

It's also not in Program Files on my 64-bit workstation - it's in Program Files (x86).

I don't have the commandline edition.

Thanks guys.

I need the command line add-on since I compress and encrypt the back-end .mdb file through my database, before sending it to either the client (or them to me).

Here's an article that shows how to manage this with code (and without Winzip):

Doesn't provide encryption in that article, but I"m sure you can include it as well.
