I have a zip file with some x number of files{only files and no folders}. I need to extract just the first file without unzipping the file and has to be implemented in C++/MFC.

I went through this requirement a few months ago - the easiest open-source library I could find to go manipulate a Zip archive was InfoZip. I compile unzip60 as a static library and link the library into my executable.

I found the 7-zip SDK a bit overwhelming for simply unzipping an archive - the InfoZip library was very easy to understand and use. Its written in C but it only took me about an hour to write a C++ wrapper class for easier integration into my project.
