How to unzip a file using Shell32?

Posted By:Jean Paul       Posted Date: February 04, 2011    Points: 15    Category: File Operation    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

Add reference to Shell32.dll from c:\windows\system32 folder

DirectoryInfo di = new DirectoryInfo(@"C:\Temp\");

            foreach (FileInfo fi in di.GetFiles("*.zip"))
                String file = fi.ToString();
                var destinationPath = @"C:\Temp\AppName\";
                if (!Directory.Exists(destinationPath))

                Shell sh = new Shell();
                Folder destFlder = sh.NameSpace(destinationPath);
                Folder srcFlder = sh.NameSpace(fi.FullName);
                foreach (FolderItem F in srcFlder.Items())
                    destFlder.CopyHere(F, null);
