Universal CLS for Precomp

Here's an attempt of making CLS precomp for newer precomp versions, not as good as the one done by ProFrager but at least shows progress.

Precomp versions supported:
All (0.38-0.46)

Brute method is not supported, only intense method is available.

only cls-precomp.dll and your precomp.exe are needed for both compression and decompression else if cls is not present during compression and you added arc.ini and you use this cls, decompression will ALWAYS fail.

Injection not necessary

Drawbacks:
Using this cls may inflict on final size than when you use precomp without it, the bright side is it shows progress during installation for any newer precomp versions.
Games like DiRT Rally are the ones most likely to inflict a lot on final size because the game is filled with massive zlib streams.
Otherwise for the drawback, if it bad news to you, you could rely on the version done by ProFrager.
Another drawback is temp directory is created for precomp to work on.
If the compressors used other than precomp take long to decompress, percentage will look stuck sometimes, also depends on how big the inflated size was after precomp.

I did this in about an hour and only ran 2 successful tests so if there are any bugs, please report back.

Tested using Precomp 0.45 both x86 and x64.

Enjoy

Final update avaliable

Changes

-Added support for older precomp versions [0.38-0.42]
-Overall precomp versions supported: 0.38, 0.40, 0.41, 0.42, 0.43, 0.44, 0.45, 0.46...
-If anything older than 0.38 had the same command line as 0.38 itself then it is also supported. e.g. 0.37
-If anything newer than 0.46 will have the same command line as 0.46, then it will also be supported. e.g. 0.47
-Added architecture detection, for newer precomp versions, they come with x86 and x64 so making a separate method for cls-precomp64 is not necessary, just put both precomp.exe and precomp64.exe maintaining only one cls which is cls-precomp.dll, if system is x64, it will use precomp64.exe (if present else it will use precomp.exe) and if system is x86, it will just use precomp.exe and not use precomp64.exe at all. BTW, don't worry, it doesn't matter if you used precomp64 and decompress with precomp or visa versa, it will still work.
-Precomp version package included, check encode.ru or github for more updates.

-Can you please change the title of the thread to Universal CLS for Precomp

Thanks A Lot Razor12911 for your time making this "CLS-Precomp.dll"

Can I use this CLS-Precomp.dll along side with [black box] inno setup installer?
