I need to make a zip file available to all my Windows users visitors, so I naively produced a zip file with the Unix zip command (let's call it madeinlinux.zip).
It opens successfully with WinRar or Winzip, but those of my users who are using the standard Windows zip file handling experience failure when trying to unzip it. (Windows XP)
I compressed the same data using Windows built-in zip mecanism, and from a Linux point of view, I cannot see any difference in the file type:
$ file madeinlinux.zip : Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract $ file madeinwindows.zip : Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract
They're must be something specific to a Windows compatible zip file.
Does anyone knows what?
