I am looking for a free zip and unzip component for delphi that does NOT use external DLLS.

I have tried the components from the Jedi group as well as the SciZipFile component and the jbzip components but none of them seem to work for me so I am hoping there are some others out there that might work.

Also I have looked at the other compoents at torrys but from what I can see the only other freeware ones require the zip/unzip dlls and I don't want to use any dlls if I can avoid it thx.

Thx for the reply but I am curious before I download and install it if it will work with zip files that winzip and winrar create becasue that is what I will manily need the component for I don't need the zipping part just the unzipping part and all the files that need to be unzipped will be in either one of those formats or a compatable formats to one of those.

I noticed it handles pkzip 4 files but not sure if thats the same format as winzip files or not and if you don't know it's fine just was curious.

I tested to unzip 2 files:
1). .zip created using WinRar: it was successfully unzipped;
2). .zip created using PowerArchiver: it was successfully unzipped;

I have ZipForge but saw on it's website it's only free "For trial and personal use" and not sure that includes freeware applications that I will be releasing to the public or as it says for my "personal use" only...
