I need to unzip a file from within VFP 9. I found a couple of different solutions, but as of yet have had no success using any of them.
My latest attempt is with vfpcompression.fll, which looks to be very straightforward. I found what appears to be three different versions available for download. I'm using the latest one I could find, from Dec 2008.
Basically all you do is:
SET LIBRARY TO (pcLibrariesDir) + "vfpcompression.fll"
SET LIBRARY TO
lcFileName is the full path and file name of the file to be unzipped. It will be unzipped into the same directory. Seems pretty simple.
Yet I have been attempting to get this simple task to work now for more than two hours.
I found in another forum that you need to have both msvcr71.dll and msvcp71.dll in the same directory as vfpcompression.fll, which they are.
I have no idea why this is not working.
