Current VCLZip?

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

We are using an "prehistoric" version (2.21 AFAICT) of VCLZip by Kevin Boylan together with Delphi 2007.

After finally making the switch to an Unicode version of Delphi we get some errors with invalid zip files and the like.

In the internet I found references to an Unicode aware version 4.50 but no way to to licence or download it.

Does anybody have any hints with this?

To which Delphi? Since XE2 there is System.Zip.TZipFile which would be the right way to move to.

XE6 for now. I know about System.Zip.TZipFile, but IIRC it didn't have all features we use from VCLZip. I should look again. :classic_biggrin:

The old download page exists, http://vclzip.bizland.com/v4src.htm but all the source downloads are password protected and you can not buy a new license.  But maybe someone not using theirs would sell it?  I still use VCLZip.   Not sure if Kevin is still around, would have been good if it had been made open source.

FWIW: I sent an e-mail to his bigfoot address and got an "Undeliverable". 😞
