Zip in VB for windows xp

VBPhilly
P: 95
Not wanting to use WinZip or any other 3rd party implementation of file compression. It's built right in Windows XP and later.

My question is, how do I utilize it? Create a folder, add contents and rename folder to .zip?

Any ideas?

Just Select the files you wish to compress, Right Click and send to a compressed (zipped) folder.

at least that is how it works in windows xp pro.

Thanks. I know you can do this manually. I need to do it in code and without using third party software (like Winzip).

Anyone know?
