    i am using ArchiverPlus lib made by @Informatix and i am getting crashes when i try to use it.

    is it a problem in the lib or maybe in my code??

    this is my code:

    Arc.AddFilesToZip(filelist,File.DirInternal & "/" & myuserid & ".zip","Archiver")   

    Sub Archiver_ZipResult(Result As Int, ErrorMsg As String)
    Select Result
    Select zipid 
    Case 0
    If File.Exists(File.DirInternal, myuserid & ".zip"Then 
    End If                   
    Case 1
    Log("SUCCESSFULLY unzipped")
    End Select
    Select zipid 
    Case 0
    Log("error creating zip: " & ErrorMsg)                       
    Case 1
    Log("error creating zip: " & ErrorMsg)   
    End Select
    End Select
    End Sub

    the weird thing is that it is working in debug mode but not in release mode. why?

    Looks like ZipResult is raised on a different thread. This is problematic.

    Try to use CallSubDelayed to call a different sub from ZipResult.

    I tried it but it still didnot work. Informatix send me a mail saying that the error was caused because i used a progressdialog. He said that i should not update any view or use any dialogs in the zip_result event.

    I expect CallSubDelayed to work. Have you moved all the code to the new sub that is called?

    yes, you are right, using callsubdelayed did works. i used before callsubdelayed but not from the zip_result event. I thought the arc.addfilestozip(...) should be called with callsubdelayed and now i moved everything from the zipresult event and called it with callsubdelayed and it worked.

    thank you very much :)

    indeed, you wrote it and i follow all your instructions, i just had to get back home and try what you wrote to me. i tried it before your mail with callsubdelayed but did it wrong. anyway, thank you very much for your fast support. :) everything is working fine now!
