Description

18 years ago
Archive seems to be corrupted
while it contains directory information, upon extraction (by various utilities)
it dumps everything into one directory.

This is bad:
since some files have the same name, they get clobbered
app relies on ceertain directory strcuture

I'm assuming this refers to the Win32 .zip (since OS == NT) which I've extracted
successfully before, and even though spontaneous corruption would be pretty
weird, I downloaded it again to make sure and extracted successfully (directory
structure OK, runs fine) with WinZip 7.0.

Resolving WORKSFORME.

belg4mit@mit.edu, just about any program that understands .zip files
can extract with directory structure, but that doesn't mean that this
feature is turned on by default in the app that you are using.

In WinZip, the checkbox labelled "Use Folder Names" must be checked in
the Extract dialog with the "Classic" interface. Look for something
similar in other apps. The wizard interface of Winzip seems to work correctly
by default.

If you see the directory structure, it is there. It is possible that you
do have a corrupt download, but any zip utility I've ever seen would complain
before letting you see inside the zip. So check to make sure your app is using
the directory information. If it is, it *does* work.

Confirm WORKSFORME, but this one is really INVALID, it has nothing to do with
Mozilla.
