About CabPack

On this page you can download the latest version of CabPack, a freeware compression program with which you can create cabinet (.CAB) files. With just a few mouse clicks you specify which files to compress, which compression method to use, where the output files should go and whether or not the cabinet files should span multiple disks. CabPack is able to store subdirectories, and depending on the platform you wish to extract the cabinets on, it can create .CAB files that contain long filenames or store these long filenames in the 8.3 format.
New in v1.4: the ability to create spanned .CAB files directly on disk drives.

CabPack runs with Windows 95, 98, and NT 4.

CabPack 1.4a Upgrade (274K, EXE files only)
Problem with path names > 125 characters fixed.

Please note: At the moment Iím not planning to put more work into CabPack, so you donít need to email me requesting new features for the program. Especially, unless I find a possibility to create SFX archives without having to use EXTRACT.EXE, CabPack will NOT have built-in creation of self-extracting archives (EXE files). For this task you should use Microsoftís IEXPRESS (see the documentation for more detail).

However, you may check back here from time to time to see if a new version is available. And if you have any comments or questions regarding the program (or find any bugs), please donít hesitate to email me!
