Zip and Shell (XP) issues

Dec 14, 2010 at 8:56 PM

I tried using the Explorer Shell Zip capabilities in some .NET code but had problems in XP running the app in that Vista/win7 shell is different to the XP in this respect.

Does this library not suffer that problem or is it built on the Win7 Zip capability ("Send to Compressed Folder" engine)?

If this is not the case then I'll make use of it in my app as you clearly indicates how to include it as a built in component (with due acknowledgement of course).

I am currently using another zip library but this one loooks better.  ..A Windows CE 6 Tool for generating a Stream Driver project shell and ancillary test apps.  (I zip-up/unzip the project files)

This library is independent of the Windows Explorer zip capability.

It should work fine for your scenario.
