    Oh, come on!

    I do what I said. It takes me directly to http://www.zlib.net/ . I scroll down the page until I find this text: "zlib compiled DLL, version 1.2.3, zipfile format". Just below, I find this link: http://www.zlib.net/zlib123-dll.zip

    Are you sure you want to program? Computers are difficult, you know.

    Search for 7-Zip. It's a zip file decompressor.

    Whether or not you need to do any "post process" on a downloaded DLL depends on which compiler you intend to use it with.
    Which ARE you using?

    The last time I used zlib with say VC6, the process was remarkably smooth.

    Have you read http://www.zlib.net/DLL_FAQ.txt

    And please use English and not the kiddie speak "u" and "ur" and "plz".

    Or you could download the source and build the thing yourself. The source package contains a VC++ project.
