wp8 different output

Jan 28, 2013 at 3:00 PM


I tried to compile the lib for Windows phone 8. I have a problem though: I use the lib the create xlsx files from a directory. When I open them in Excel it says they are corrupt.

So I tried the same thing in a console app(exact same source directory) and it worked! When I inspect with the debugger both produced a different output ...

I even tried to set Compression options to none and algorithm none. Still doesn't work on the phone emulator and works on PC.

any ideas? (I don't need to compress only to create a zip file)

Interesting.... I'm trying to achieve the same thing for a PowerPoint file with WP8. I tried SharpCompress but that didn't work. It doesn't support Zip64 which I'm hearing may be required for Office files. I'm now investigating other libraries. All because Microsoft couldn't throw us a bone with System.IO.Compression...

Have you managed to create valid Office files from the phone yet?

FYI I got it to work with SharpZipLib. I haven't tried DotNetZip.
