    Is there any way I can Zip/Compress files using .NET (VB.NET preferably).

    Any working examples will help.

    Thanks and regards,

    RAJ

  2. You will need to either buy or build a Zip Extractor component. There are
    several available on the net.

    "/n software" has a component called "IP*WORKS! ZIP" that will do this.
    Haven't used it but heard good things about it.

  5. Some free options:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/03/06/ZipCompression/
    http://www.icsharpcode.net/OpenSource/SharpZipLib/Default.aspx

    A pay option that I have used on a project:
    http://www.componentone.com/products.aspx?ProductCode=1&ProductID=26

    Hope this helps,

  6. The second Link Supplied by Bryant is excellent.
    I have had very good results with it. It allows you to specify how well you
    want your file to be compressed. I recomend it.

    Thank you all who replied to the message for your help. I have now
    implemented the second link as suggested by Landi. It works very well.
