Passing encryted passwords between .exe


I'm new to the amazing world of encryption and I'm just looking for some best practice ideas.

My scenario is that I have one application that I want to open a password protected .zip file. I can do it easily from my application but anyone could discover the password too if they use a simple API monitor.

Are there any secure methods of passing the password to the .zip without it being exposed?

Many thanks.
