The Cabinet Software Development Kit provides developers with the components needed to utilize Microsoft's cabinet file technology within other applications, or to build cabinet file management tools. Microsoft is committed to making cabinet files an open technology.

This release of the Cabinet Software Development Kit (formerly called the Cabinet Resource Kit) provides complete documentation of cabinet file internals and the various data compression formats used in cabinet files, including the new LZX data compression technology.

Note   The executable and library files in this release are for Microsoft Windows 95 and Microsoft Windows NT on Intel i386 platforms. Some libraries for 16-bit applications on Intel x86 platforms and other 32-bit Windows NT platforms are available.

Another tool, called CABView, can be found in the Microsoft Power Toys Web site. CABView allows you to treat CAB files like foldersyou can look inside and drag files in/out with ease.
