Hi Antonio,

ok i finally got it working. I had to grab 2 DLLs from the MinGW Project:
- libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
- libstdc++-6.dll
and put them in the same directory as the lzip.exe.

Only the most recent version i found worked for me, older ones didn't.
The download links are here:

Maybe it would be wise to include these libraries with your lzip.exe
or have at least a short readme.txt with these links included. I had
to do a bit of search to find these.
