Required improvements and known problems

I have encountered the following problems using this package. If you have solutions to them, please let me know.

1. OnProgess() event should allow to interrupt if Esc key or cancel button is pressed.

2. .OCX file German resource strings should be changed to english using resource hacker from . Chris Vleghert wrote:

a. You open the zipmaster .ocx file
b. then choose Action | Replace other resource from the menu
c. open the language resource file ZipMsgUS.res
d. Replace the complete string table available (16 times)

3. Run time translation should be added. Alls message translations must be handled by VFP application at run time.

4. I need the option to exlude some files during unzipping.

5. I don't know wil the user select floppy or hard disk for backup. So I use options

.AddDirNames = .t. and
.AddRecurseDirs = .t.

However, if I create a zip file in C: disk, it adds a 001 suffix to file name.

6. .ocx must be compiled using latest DelZip release. Problably this resolves problems 1-4

7. WAIT WINDOW NOWAIT in OnProgress() event flashes strangely. Why ?It should be replaced by progress bar.

8. Creating zip file to writeble cdrom drive (mounted using HP Easy CD creator under Win 98) gives error this disk could not be formatted . However, ZIP file is created correctly.
