I was wondering if RebEx Zip API supports 7-zip format files? If it does, is there anything specific I need to do to open the file.

I am using Zip Explorer sample app and I am getting a 'Invalid or corrupted zip archive' message - similar message when I open with ZipArchive class constructor.

Thank you Regards Athadu

The Rebex Zip for .NET supports only ZIP format (traditional PKWARE's ZIP format).

The exception indicates that you are trying to open a 7-zip file (not a ZIP file). You can check it easy by looking at the first two bytes of the file. If it is '7z' it is a 7-zip file, if it is 'PK' it is a ZIP file.
