  • glasyo,

    This forum supports the Open Specifications documentation located here: It seems that your question is not related to this documentation.

    Also, the LZX algorithm was not created and currently is not maintained by Microsoft. However, if you search in most search engines for something like the following: "LZW compression source" you will find some very helpful results. I'd recommend for your searching needs. This particular page was very promising for the information you were seeking:

    Hope this helps!

  • This information is not correct; Microsoft does maintain the LZX algorithm.  Cabinet (CAB) files may use LZX, but the codec is not exposed separately.  Please see for more information about the Cabinet format and the LZX codec.
