    zip files for download


    I have created a form where it consists of a checklist from which the user select which files they would like to download.

    When the form is submitted, i would like the files that have been checked to be zipped up and then made available for the user to download/save to their machine.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to execute this?

    The server i am working on is IIS6 on Server 2003 R2.

    I have looked at this component but have add no joy with it, the page executes but nothing happens.

    Are there any other alternative components that anyone has had experience with?

    Well you can try some of the solutions here but it looks to me like you'll have to either incorporate Windows Script Host on the server or use a component of some sort.

    Here's a Java Applet that might work from 4guysfromrolla... It will probably work for you easier than a component.

    Failing that, I would suggest that you build the solution with ASP.NET instead of ASP Classic.
