Good Day Experts!

I have a little VB.Net 2005 project that I output a .xls file from.  I am interested in making it into a .zip file.
Is there a way to do this within the .Net Framework with no ThirdParty software?

I have searched the Net and found some solutions for 4.5 but I am unable to find a suitable solution for what I have.

Do you have any reference suggestions I can take a look at?

Thanks,

Not without implementing the ZIP specification yourself. The only suites that were available back in 2.0/3.x were DeflateStream and GZipStream.

Thanks for the replies.  I will have to take a look at one of these in the future.   A new large project just came aboard so I won't be able to get to this for a while.  

Thanks,
