    ZIP class - unzipping it

    I am using a ZIP class (found at http://www.pscode.com/vb/scripts/Sho...d=957&lngWId=8 ) to create a ZIP file on the fly. The archive has several files, two sub-directories, each with files and a few sub-directories inside of them.

    Anyway, when customers download the file, it works most of the time. But, some of them are having problems un-zipping it again. They tell me that all they see is the files in the archive's root, and that they see no sub-directories at all. One said it worked find using WinRar, but when he tried to un-zip using WinXP or WinZIP, it failed. I have tried it on my machine...it works fine. Most of my customers also have no problems. But, there are those few....

    Any ideas here?

    I was looking for a zip feature the same and found a class called pclzip. Not that this really helps but I found that it helped me with all my zipping problems.
