  • WinBatch® can do it.

Unfortunately the Zipper Extender included with WinBatch does not support gzip files.

So you can either track down a 3rd party library to DllCall.
zlib1.dll can be located here:


Run a command line tool from your WinBatch script:

The 7-zip compression utility is also a good choice and can be driven from a WinBatch script.  It has the advantage of supporting almost all commonly used compression formats including tarball acrhives.
