Since the release of the .Net Framework 3.0, we are now able to handle .zip files.  Microsoft provides the System.IO.Packaging class but it is so deeply hidden that most of us missed it. Check http://emoreau.com/Entries/Articles/2008/08/Introducing-SystemIOPackaging.aspx

CreateFilenameFromUri on line 4 in your code sample is claiming not to be declared.  I do have IO.Packaging imported so that is not the source of the problem.  Any suggestions are welcome.  

I am using framework 3.5 and due to the business reluctance to upgrade that is unfortunately my limit at the moment.
