Hi,

Anybody already use 7z.dll in a VP7 project ?

I used 7za.exe, the command line version, in a failrly data-intensive application. Never had a problem with that approach. The lastest file date I find on SourceForge is 2007:

There is more info here:

Yes, actually I also use 7z.exe with command line from a VP7 application but this use requires a full installation of 7z, but, using the dLL (7z.dll), I guess I would only need this dLL to put into the same folder as my application...

7Za is a single file, stand-alone executable that doesn't require the other support files used by 7Z. It runs from my application's executable directory.
