This is the Windows version of LhA:
http://aminet.net/package/util/arc/lhant
Extract it with WinRAR.

I think the only GUI you can use is perhaps a bolt-on one such as Total Commander (but I don't use it).

But you can use almost any compressor you like on the PC cos you can find almost any type of de-compressor for Amiga on aminet.

A quick google returned Zip Kingdom. A Freeware archiver with GUI which packs LHA, among others.

Send a message via MSN to cosmicfrog
do your self a favour Djay and get total commander then the amiga specific plugins, adf,dms,lha ext
you can then use total commander as a frontend to your packer of choice, lha, I use it for 7z + a hell of a lot of other things
