WinZip wityh .Net

EdB
Has anyone ever interfaced with winZip from inside a VB.Net app?

I'm looking to automatically zip up some files then delete them.

Thanks for the reply Jon, I looked at this briefly. Is this leveraging the
actual WinZip or is this a "custom" zip approach? I would need my customers
to be able to open the unzip the file using WinZip.

It's using the standard zip format, which can be opened using WinZip or
any other zip program.
