    Only if you are downloading it from your own server then you can script the server to unzip it and send each file to the user, In ams downloading a random zip file then I really don't think so.

        Think about what you are asking and consider....

        I post an image of a image of an apple which is sitting on my table, can you eat it? Yes of course you can but you need it in your hand first. To do things with physical objects that are remote or distant you generally need to be able to touch them in some way.

        Now if I put a zip file on a server can you unpack it without having it on your own PC? Yes you can, unlike the apple the representation on the server is the object. You can have the server unzip the zip file for you then you still need to physically download something to see the contents.

        But if you try to unpack a zip file before it is all on your PC it won't work, you need it all first.

        So you get a conditional yes on your question. It will depend what you are trying to do, what resources you have available and why you want to do it as it might be a little tricky to manage safely.

          I make a protection system for games and looking into having it so the game would be held on a server and would unpack then load the game files so the game is not held on there system. At the moment it downloads the encrypted file and then unpacks it once on the machine into a virtual drive, I was just thinking if i could make it just unpack to the computer without downloading it may save on time before playing the game.

            outside php aria
            make the file password protected (with hard password)
            make your game (in client side) unpack the file with the right password
            of course after make sure that was a legal customer (paid one)

            better is

            zip the password with a password
            upload it to your server
            when you feel that you get paid then download tha pasworded pass
            again
            make your game unpack the pass and use it to unpack your passworded files

            there is more complicated planes
            but
            may be hard to enplane in simple mode
