Not sure what you really mean when you say "using visual studio", given that you placed this in the MS-DOS zone. If you want to do this from a command line or in a batch file, then you will need a zip utility program like 7-ZIP to do this.

Will all the files from the ZIP files go into a single folder?

Where are the ZIP files located, all in a single folder?

Does the ZIP contain subfolders?
