    We are using Xceedzip.dll ‘s expoted XzZip API to create to compressed files in an ActiveX control but there an issue with this library. We are not able to create zip files using XzZip API on IE8 with Windows 7. Same code is working fine with IE8 on Windows XP. It is also working fine in a standalone desktop application on both Windows XP as well as Windows 7.

    When XzZip API fails on Windows 7 in ActiveX there is no error code returned by it. It simply does not create the zip file.

    We are using 5.0.117.0 version. Please let us know if there is any workaround for this problem.

    Hi Manish,

    Can you please and see if the issue remains with the latest version of the Zip Compression Library, which you can download from the folowing page:

    Still same issue on Windows 7 even with latest (i.e. 6.5.10316.0) XceedZip.dll

    Hi Manish,

    Can you please send us with a sample application that reproduces this behavior to support@xceed.com so that we can investigate further?

    Finally we are able to resolve the issue partially.

    Earlier we were creating zip files using XzZip() in some folder on D:\ using our ActiveX which was working fine on Windows XP but on Windows 7 it was failing with error code 503 (in latest XceedZip.dll, old XceedZip.dll was returning 0).

    When we tried XzZip() for creating zip files in a Windows 7 temp folder i.e. “C:\Users\user007\AppData\Local\Temp” it worked fine.

    Now the problem is, when we created a sample ActiveX with following lines and it worked fine on Windows 7 even for creating zip files on D:\

    HXCEEDZIP hZip = NULL;

    XceedZipInitDLL();
    hZip = XzCreateXceedZip(LICENSESTR);
    XzSetZipFilename(hZip, _T(“D:\\XceedTest.zip”));
    XzSetFilesToProcess(hZip, _T(“D:\\events.log”));

    int ret = XzZip(hZip);

    Above code is not working for D:\ in our ActiveX on Windows 7. We are thinking it may be because of we tested sample ActiveX with a html file, placed in D:\

    We will do some more R&D and keep it posted on this forum. Mean while if you have any answer, please let us know.

    Regards,
    Manish Agarwal
