Can you run a script to compress a group of files to a zip file on the desktop using the inbuilt zip compression???

XP's built-in zip functionality does not include a command line interface.

Could you just install a file compression utility to do it by batch file.

Old pkzip.exe could work at a pinch, but I do know winzip has a comandline interface add-on, and I think a lot of others probably support for use on the command line as well.
