    Re: Download rar/zip file and extract to a certain folder

    With regards to showing progress, have you read the documentation for that DownloadFile method? Presumably not. You should do so now.

    As for decompression, the Framework can handle ZIP files but not RAR, so you'll require a third-party component. If you're using that for RAR then you may as well use it for ZIP too. Here's one that can handle both:

    Perhaps you should tell us what you do need then. As I said, the Framework can handle ZIP files so if that's all you need then you don't have to use a third-party component.

    Re: Download rar/zip file and extract to a certain folder

    You can call the ZipFile.ExtractToDirectory method. Note that it requires .NET 4.5 or later.

    The same way you delete any file. If you want to know how to delete a file in VB.NET then do the obvious:

    https://www.google.com.au/search?q=d...A-aK8QeqgoGoCQ

    Look first, ask questions later. We're here for the difficult stuff, not so you don't have to bother searching for yourself.

    I said that you should call the ZipFile.ExtractToDirectory method.

    https://www.google.com.au/search?q=Z...FuTC8geyooCADg

    The very first result is the MSDN documentation for the method.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...vs.110%29.aspx

    There are many more matches besides but that one includes a code example. Have you read that code example? If you really do search then you must have found it so what exactly do you not understand about it? It's a one-liner to extract from a ZIP file path to a folder path.
