Did you even look in the Help file?

I'm guessing not, so check out the Process Management section.

That will tell you about Open and Close etc.

Beyond that, you need to know the specific commands for that DLL.

Lucky for you, you don't need to go searching too far, as a few others here, have already done the work for you.

I'm guessing you've not done a search in 'Forums' here, for 7zip either.

Well, what's stopping you ... get to it!

No, i tried searching 7 zip in forums but no useful results, Dll Tutorial is too complex & 7 zip udf's download link is broken

Dll Call is pretty complex, that's why the tut seems complex. The download for 7Zip is just fine and not external, I just downloaded it myself.

      Hi guys!
      A pretty simple UDF to convert HTML to PDF using wkHTMLtoPDF.
      It uses the C API of the tool (DLL), so no external process, no ActiveX or COM sh*t.
      See the example, and the documentation of wkHTMLtoPDF.
      Cheers

      This is relevant
      From here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3454315/is-it-possible-to-pin-a-dll-in-memory-to-prevent-unloading
      I use several UDFs on the Forum to do various things.  Those UDFs work very well.
      Effectively the UDFs are DLL wrappers, that make it possible to access DLL functions easily without the long hard slog of DLLCall() every time.
      However, I have now run into the issue that multiple UDF DLLCalls are slow. Not mind numbingly slow, but slow enough to become noticeable with a large of repeated function calls.
      So I was wondering, is it possible to "load a DLL into memory" and leave it there for the duration of my script's lifetime, avoid repeated DLL on-disk reads with a persistent in memory DLL?
      From Microsoft
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/dlls/about-dynamic-link-libraries
      Looks like what I want to do is: load-time dynamic linking,
      So next question, (a) how do I do this with AutoIt (b) How would this impact on standard AutoIt type DLL calls?
       
      The point is speed.  Is there a different approach?
      Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
