    I actually didn't even notice the typo. Thanks for pointing that out. There are actually some libraries out there for zips (probably cabs too). You should check out google and search for something like that. Worse case senario you will have to write your own decompressor, which although not necessarily difficult can prove to be very tedious (depending on what sort of documentation is out there). I'm sure cabs are well documented so even writing your own decompressor should be fairly painless.
