  1. Re: Accessing the file system context menus from within VB6

    While it means far more code, the free 3rd party zlibwapi.dll reasonably small and well-proven... and can provide far more control than using Shell Automation.

    There are plenty of VB6 wrappers for...
  2. Re: VB6 - Zipper & ZipWriter, Zipping from VB programs

    Here is another demo. This one just shows creating a ZIP archive from a folder, but it also includes subfolders if any are present.

    That is something not spelled out in the previous example.

    Re: VB6 - WIA "BlendPaint" Demo

    I suggest you ask this in the VB6 Q&A forum, perhaps with more details of exactly what you want. WIA might not offer the necessarily flexibility, so you may get several better alternatives.

  9. Re: Script to count number of files in folder/subfolders

    This doesn't look like a programming question, and certainly not a VB6 question. More of a "Feed me Seymour!" demand, and for a script at that. So it is posted in the wrong forum at best.
