And no wonder. I didn't realize just how messed up this is. Even working with lz32.dll is a little bizarre. This takes the cake however.

MS examples of using the GZipStream class are here:

Seriously though. It's ... crazy.
You'll have better luck with DotNetZip:

On the other hand, if you want to avoid library dependencies, consider using compress.exe & lz32.dll. Guaranteed availability, nothing else to buy, install, configure, etc., etc.

If you're interested, I can whip up an example this weekend (I think I might actually have a whole *four hours* free Saturday! It won't be compatible with zip though, even if it does do multiple file archiving.
