Working wth VB6 to use 7z.dll

Sorry, new, so educate me.

Have Latest 7z.dll  v18.05

I am using VB6 VszLib source compiled to a VszLib.dll

I have found the same problems as below running the VszLib.vb in he VB6 IDE.

I have working code to use 7z.dll for the following:


   Compress files with or without a password.   I checked with 7zip.exe.

       I include the path info since files are in subfolders.

   Get FileInfo.   I see the files in the archive i just created.

   Get FileTypeinfo.  I see the info in the archive i just created.

These seem to work OK.

But I cannot get

   “Extract” to work.

        here I get a progress callback for each file in the archive but there are no files extracted.

   Update to work.

        It creates a new .7z file.

   Trying to use 7z.dll to create a .Zip fails.

And please do not give me any heartburn about VB6.

That is what I have and that is what I have to use.

Thanks !
