The 64-bit ActiveX DLL's for all Chilkat ActiveX components are combined in single .zip download. To install, unzip to any directory and run the "register.bat" file.

Important: Be sure to read the "README.html" included in the .zip, especially if Windows 7 is the operating system.

Download Chilkat ActiveX Components for x64 v9.4.0 • 13-Dec-2012

the relevant dll you are looking for is ChilkatCompression.dll called via

set compress = CreateObject("Chilkat.Compression")

(or whatever for your language)

I've downloaded That file, there is no ChilkatCompression.dll, Even the test file opens correctly All objects, but no compression object is tested.

My apologies, I don't know why I thought it was there. I guess i don't know the correct answer, but I do have good news

  1. x64 should run 32bit dlls http://www.cknotes.com/?cat=16 and http://www.cknotes.com/?p=293
  2. there are some compression methods available in ChilkatCrypt2_x64.dll currently only bzip2 according to the documentation (assuming it is congruent with the 32bit version as I suspect)

I see now that there are also zip and bz2 dlls in that download, but you need deflate... there is a

DeflateStringENC(inStr As String, charset As String, encoding As String) As String

in the gzip dll. That could be of use.
