HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. <- This is hysterical laughter, BTW.
I've just spent a week trying to figure out how to make script tasks do what I want. When I Google for info, I get "zip entire directory" or "zip one file".
I know next to nothing about that code. Trying to find a article describing the "Zip specific files with different names in a directory that can have dozens and dozens of different files and make sure it doesn't fail if one of those files is missing" is beyond my Google-Fu.
Plus if I can use 7-Zip, I just have to update config files without replacing my Execute Process steps in all the SSIS packages I'm updating. Otherwise I'm editing a dozen or more SSIS packages to change tasks and then I have to put them through our full SDLC process because I changed the packages and … well, stuff.
If I have to chase the .Net thing, I will. But it's hard concentrating on code I don't know when working from home with a toddler that wants constant attention. I have to start over reading everything from scratch every time I get interrupted. So I decided to start over with 7-Zip because I know the GUI interface at least and figured the command lines couldn't be too different from WinZip assuming that it could be automated.
