zlib

If you need a data compression/de-compression library, zlib will fit the bill.

zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered — that is, not covered by any patents — lossless data-compression library for use on virtually any computer hardware and operating system.

Everything you need can be obtained from

http://zlib.net/

Instructions for building the library and dlls is contained within the download – I was using version 1.2.6
