Does anyone know any version of Gzip which supports 64-bit Windows? I could not find anything.

What do you mean by "supports"? The 32-bit version of Gzip should run just fine on 64-bit versions of Windows. There is no need for a 64-bit specific version of Gzip. – Mark Aug 17 '10 at 16:43
when I use GZIP in 64-bit Windows, I receive this message: the program "GZIP.exe" cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available. – Shadi Aug 17 '10 at 16:53

You can use 7-zip to work with gzip files on 64-bit Windows.

I was looking for a command-line GZIP. I did not know that 7-zip has it. I found it now with your help. Thanks. – Shadi Aug 17 '10 at 17:10

Winrar will open gzip file, they have 64 bit and 32 bit versions here:

Actually, I needed to compress (not decompress) files. I do not think winrar can do Gzip compression. Thanks – Shadi Aug 17 '10 at 17:11
