PowerTCP Zip Compression for ActiveX lets you add high-speed,
reliable, zip/unzip functionality to your applications regardless of
whether you are manipulating files or memory. PowerTCP have
developed their own unique methods and objects that will allow you
to work quickly and easily regardless of your project's complexity.
For those simple jobs, the QuickZip and QuickUnzip methods perform
compression and decompression of files with only one line of code.
This tool also includes a unique FileStore object, which gives you
fine-tuned memory/file support. You will finally be able to move
data from a memory buffer to a compressed file or vice-versa and
easily extract a single file from a compressed file, display
information about an individual file within a compressed file and
search inside a compressed file. Now PowerTCP Zip Compression for
ActiveX also contains self-extraction and AES encryption capability.
If all these great features just aren't needed right now, review our
ZipLite version for simple zip/unzip functionality.
Don't sacrifice speed for performance when you can get them both in
the new PowerTCP Zip Compression for ActiveX.

All PowerTCP Zip Compression for ActiveX components are completely
interoperable with the .NET Framework. In fact, 2 VB.NET samples are
included demonstrating how this interoperability works and full
interoperability instructions are provided in the product
Looking to integrate file compression into Visual Basic? PowerTCP
Zip Compression for ActiveX contains 5 full sample projects for
Visual Basic, including a full-blown Visual Basic Zip Manager.
PowerTCP Zip Compression for ActiveX includes C++ wrapper classes to
make file compression integration into C++ even easier. In addition,
4 full sample projects are included.
Just add the PowerTCP components to Component Library and
you have taken the first step in using PowerTCP in Delphi! Two
samples are included.
Two samples are included demonstrating use of the Zip
control in C++ Builder.
Since PowerTCP Zip Compression for ActiveX has the ability
to compress/decompress files completely in memory (using the
DartStream object), it is perfect for ASP applications. In fact,
