WinZIP should be able to open at least the .lha files via the external program, lha.exe. The same one might work for .lzx as well.

Total Commander supports both formats (lzx with a plugin).

Belive me. I have tried a lot of lzx files with the plugin and then, compared the files extracted with the original files using a file comparing utility and there are lots of errors. Don't use it

WinRAR doesnt do lzx... it does LHZ and LHA (effectively the same thing) but not LZX (yet)

We do not have it in our current "to do" list, but maybe we'll
consider it in the future. I do not know yet.

Thank you for suggestion.
