    Thanks for that reply.
    Yep I realise the differences between .zip\.rar and a .iso image. :yes
    Like you say the main archivers are able to extract .iso images. My .cmd uses 7zip.dll and 7zip.exe in a given dir and by a simple double click on the .cmd the .iso is extracted.
    This works well.
    I made a simple button project to shell.execute my .cmd and it worked a treat.
    I have not had time to mess further today but hopefully will be doing later.
    Might have to rethink my ideas.

    My imagination is far better than my skills

    An ISO file is a disk image, not a compressed archive. Although utilities like WinZip, WinRAR and a few others may be able to unpack the contents of an ISO file to the hard drive, the Zip plugin can't do this. If you have a disk image, you would normally mount it as a drive to access its contents, instead of copying to another folder.

    been thinking about this all last night while at work.

    One way which my work, would be to copy the .iso image to a Temp DIR. One where my extract.cmd points to, enabling the files to be extracted.

    another is to change the .iso ext to .zip and see if that works.

    Also I got to thinking about a .iso plugin. I have looked through the plugin threads and not found one.
    There are plenty of others. So somebody is making them. I don't know what goes into making an AMS Plugin but I think I will investigate. Gimme summet to do...

    On my latest project I am trying to locate a .iso image and extract it's contents to a given folder.

    I know how to make a "Dialog.FileBrowse" search for a specific file.

    I have a code on a .cmd to extract a .iso file from a certain dir into another dir.
    using the 7zip files.

    What I would like to do is have the user browse for a .iso and extract it to a certain dir on the users PC.

    this is going to be an "imageX" project but my skills let me down.

    Can a pro help me out here with a pointer or two.

    Plus is it possible to set a visible progress bar for the duration of the extraction process ?
