    It should be included in the .NET Framework and is likely hidden within your Windows system folder. Have you tried searching your machine for it?

    It should be under something like : 

    ~/Windows/Microsoft.NET/assembly/GAC_MSIL/System.IO.Compression.FileSystem/(Your .NET Version)

    If you need to include it within a project as a Reference, you should be able to access it through the following steps : 

    1. Right-click on the References Folder within your Project (or directly on your Project) in the Solution Explorer.
    2. Choose Add Reference
    3. Under the Assemblies or .NET tab, look until you find System.IO.Compression.FileSystem.dll. (You may have to navigate to the URL listed above if you can't find it)
    4. Select it and Click OK.

    Do you have the .NET 4.5 Framework downloaded?

    It looks like that particular System.IO.Compression.FileSystem.dll comes with .NET 4.5 (and only 4.5) so you'll likely have to download the Framework.

    I'm not sure how legitimate the following site is, but it looks like you can download the individual file below from Win Cabs :

    I'm not sure if the file is going to work outside of .NET 4.5 sadly. (You'll likely need to install .4.5 to handle this issue).

    I uploaded the file by itself from my machine, which you should be able to access (until the link expires) from the following link :
