@Jcreator are you looking to do it natively with AutoIt only?

Otherwise there are a number of posts using 7-Zip or other utilities.

mLipok pointed you to the wiki, which has examples on using 7-Zip. Should be all you need, but if you try something and get stuck, feel free to post here and we will do what we can to assist.

I have tried o use this script

#include <7Zip.au3>

$ArcFile = @ScriptDir & "\myArchive.zip"

$FileName = "c:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Examples"
If Not FileExists($FileName) Then Exit MsgBox(16, "Error", "File not exists")

$retResult = _7ZipAdd(0, $ArcFile, $FileName, 1)
If $retResult = 0 Then
    MsgBox(64, "_7ZipAdd", "Archive created successfully")
Else
    MsgBox(64, "_7ZipAdd", "Error occurred")
EndIf

but it look like the 7zip.au3 is not working

From where you have this UDF ? Post link to this UDF.
You should use this like this:

#include "7Zip.au3"

And put 7Zip.au3 file in the same directory where is your scirpt.

@Jcreator "it's not working" should be stricken from the English language... What isn't working? Is it simply not creating the ZIp file, is it throwing an error, is it creating the zip but not adding the files you want...? Help us help you with a more detailed description please ;)

.Net 4.5 or higher has native ZIP stuff.

So Windows 8 or 10 has it and Windows 7 would update to it.

I push a script to like 100 computers that unzips map updates, and they do not have 3rd party stuff installed so needed to use the native methods.  I am sure somebody a bit better with this stuff could come up with some good native code to zip up files.

$objShell5 = ObjCreate("Shell.Application")
$FilesInZip5 = $objShell5.NameSpace($sZip).items
$objShell5.NameSpace($sMaps).CopyHere($FilesInZip5,0x4)

Some hints on zip/unzip w/ .Net

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1153126/how-to-create-a-zip-archive-with-powershell

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.compression.zipfile(v=vs.110).aspx

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb787866(v=vs.85).aspx

I was using the zip.au3 first but it always had a pop up during the unzip process and I wanted it invisible, so thats how I came across these native methods where I was able to have the 0x4 parameter make it fully silent.

How about packing the stuff you want to distribute into sfx-files,

as in 'self-extracting-archives' ?

Those are exe-files that consist of the  zip-part with the data,

combined with an exe-part that does the extracting.

So, just transfer and run.
