Written by Tim Kosse aka CodeSquid this plugin can decompress files compressed with compressfile.exe.
The following is taken from the readme file in the ExtractDLL downloadable zip file:
What is this? ------------- ExtractDLL is a extension DLL for NSIS. It can decompress files which were compressed with compressfile.exe before. It is especially useful in combination with NSISdl so that you don't have to download large files uncompressed. Usage ----- Decompression (within NSIS script): - Push path and name of compressed file and then path and name of destination file on top of the stack. - Call the function "extract" with CallInstDLL - On Success, the string "success" is on top of the stack, else an error message. Compression (outside NSIS script or using !system): - Call CompressFile.exe with the name of the uncompressed file and of the compressed file as parameters Known limitations ----------------- Only zlib compression at this time, bzip2 will follow later.
