I use the CabFile component from TMS Software: www.tmssoftware.com - it's excellent.

I'm using the VCLZip, which I find very good.
It's not free, but I find it's value for money. You are getting source & update's so that it's always supported with tha latest version of Delphi.

Delphi also comes with the (free) zlib library. It makes it easy to (de)compress data in streams.

No comment has been added lately, so it's time to clean up this TA.
I will leave a recommendation in the Cleanup topic area that this question is:

split points between mnasman and TOndrej

Please leave any comments here within the next seven days.
