It's fine. If it is having the functionality of adding/deleting some files after creation of the zip file.
And this functionality is very important.
I need some help on .CAB files. I am developing Cabinet files management component. Are you crossed the cabinet.dll and cabarc.exe files. If you have the source code of these files please give me(even if you know the sites where i can get the help on this).
It's been awhile since I looked into it, and I think I looked into it relative to GIF-89a (?), but I remember
that if you use the Lempel-Zev compression algorithm in your code that you have to pay someone royalties. It
was very cheap, like a few cents per copy of software sold or some such thing. Anyway, sorry I can't be of
more assistance here, but this is just a note of caution about using Zip/Unzip (which uses Lempel-Zev). If
someone knows better, please correct me! But I think this needs to be checked out before you distribute
software with this 'intellectual property' in it.

If I'm mistaken this code is protected under the GNU Public Licence. It therefore can be freely modified/distributed/used in a program for profit. I doubt royalties need to be payed to use this free code... or even the Lempel-Zev algorithm
