Default please use a more generic zip tool

hi, your software zips are very tempermental. Why not just use a program like winzip that will make the zips widely accessible in other OS's such as OSX? Your zips don't work in OSX. Thanks

Hey Sross. I know its tempy with Mac and a couple winxp users have had problems.
The problem isnt how I zip it, it is how the server zips it. Each Zip is created at run time every time you download it. This is to customize the package for your linese information (i.e. the URL to host) etc...

If I could get my hands on a mac, I would see if I could fix it

Hi Just to let you know but you probably already knew it. When I downloaded my GARS it came as GARS and I just renamed it to GARS.zip.. Then I recognized it..... I use Linux...
