I want to remove a folder (META-INF) from a .ZIP file, I have tried to do this before but failed. Does anyone have a code I can use to remove a folder?

I REALLY NEED HELP! I have until the 10th to release my program as planned, and I don't want to delay it again!

I have tried to search numerous times! Thats the problem. I found NO code that could help and I tried to do it on my own and got an error saying 'Entry does not exist'...

Here's a code:
Dim selection = zip1.SelectEntries("*.*", "META-INF")
For x = selection.Count - 1 To 0 Step -1
	Dim e As ZipEntry = selection(x)

Well now I have the code and no error comes up but It still does not delete it... Can anyone point out where I went wrong here?

Dim Threshold As New String("META-INF")
Using zip As ZipFile = ZipFile.Read("C:\Users\" + GetUserName + "\AppData\Roaming\MCqTools\Mod_p\")
    Dim MarkedEntries As New System.Collections.Generic.List(Of ZipEntry)
    Dim e As ZipEntry
    For Each e In zip
        If (e.IsDirectory = Threshold) Then
        End If
    Dim folderMETA As ZipEntry
    For Each zombie In MarkedEntries
End Using

We don't just hand out source code on this site. If you wouldn't mind posting some code that shows what problems you are facing, what you have tried, and a more specific question people should be able to start helping.

Based on the example "Read in a zip file, remove a few entries, save the file" from VB.NET Examples[^] you should be able do remove all files that have "META-INF" in the file name.

Use to ZipEntry[^] class to access the FileName[^].
