I found the following comments in UncompressProcessor implementation (UncompressProcessor.cs):
--------------------------------
/// NOTE: you can use the compress.exe tool for compressing files
/// It's available on any windows installation.
--------------------------------

But compress.exe is not available everywhere:
http://support.microsoft.com/dllhelp/default.aspx?dlltype=file&l=55&alpha=compress.exe&S=1

I think it's easier to use CABARC utility from Platform SDK.

Now there is an "Application Block" that we could really use for .NET 1.x. The "Compression Application Block".

Could you give me more information on it? I cannot find anything with such name.

Thanks,
