Zipping from autoit

8 posts in this topic




Does autoit support zipping up files? Or is there a way to call a DLL that supports the feature, like this one here: http://www.zbitinc.com/samples.asp?p=2

or this one:

http://www.hdse.org/activexzip/index.htm

Sorry for my ignorance - I am completely new to this and a little overwhelmed.....

Most of us use NSIS: http://nsis.sourceforge.net/

I don't know about ZIP specifically, but yes - you can make DLL calls. Check the DllCall() function if you can find a ZIP DLL

If you're looking for a free one, try Info-Zip

I've never used it in Auto-It, but I use it on the command-line all the time

@ronsrules

I certainly, do not understand what NSIS, has to do with AutoIt and zipping?

@volkerimmler

Since you are so new to AutoIt? Maybe you could describe breifly, of your intentions. This may result, in a better answer.

I need to create a little .exe program (which I can call from within my filemaker database) that will zip up a folder (with a varying number of subfolders and files) and two files (the names are always the same)

thx

Not sure if anyone has used a dll zipper yet?

Seem to getting nowhere with Info-Zip.

Just use a commandline archiver.

A large list here.

UHARC does very good compression, But there is plenty more to choose from. Perhaps something friendly, with zip in it's name?
