I am extracting zip files using info-zip's unzip.exe process. But don't have the facility to extarct zipx files. So i want to switch to DotNetZip. efore doing so i want to confirm if they have facility for .zipx files. ?It would be great if i can get some help in this.

ZIPX files are produced by WinZip - I believe they are zip files that use alternative compression modes, one of:

  • BZip
  • LZMA
  • PPMd
  • Jpeg
  • Wavpack

    DotNetZip does not support ZIPX or any of these compression modes.  From time to time I've looked into adding support to DotNetZIp for ZIPX along with some subset of these alternatives, but so far I've not committed to actually doing the work.
