Is it possible to unpack *.Z archives?

Hello,

I'm trying to make a custom installer for an old PC game. Most of the files on the game CD are stored in *.Z archives like data.z.

Is it possible to unpack those in NSIS?

Here's a sample file:

Did you look at the plug-ins on the wiki?

If 7-zip can unpack it you can bundle their command line version.

Yes, but I was unable to find a proper plug-in by name.

No, these archives can't be unpacked using 7-Zip.

7-zip lists Z files as supported on their website. Could be a different Z of course.
