The Enhanced Zip Files action creates a step to create, add, or update files in a ZIP or SFX (self-extracting executable) file, with additional options.  When built, the action finds all matching files and folders (recursively searching for matches if specified) and compresses them into the specified ZIP or EXE file.  When the step completes, the following temporary macros are created or updated:

ZIP_PROCESS_COUNT = The number of files processed in the ZIP file


Zip tab


Compression tab


Options tab


SFX tab

See the Recurse sample for an example of this action.
The Enhanced Unzip Files action can be used to extract files from ZIP files.
