    You mean to creat the zip without having a zipper?
    If so, I think it is not possible. But if you have a zipper such as WinZip or PowerZip, you can use the SHELL command

    Dim vBack
    vBack = Shell("regedit", 1)
    OR
    vBack = Shell("c:\yourPath\winZip.exe", vbNormalFocus)


    in this way, you can start your regedit.
