Using WinZip

This morning, I decided to beginmy AI course project, so I went to my professor's library's website to download it and see how it worked.

So I had now two zip files, that I tried to unzip without success. Unzip says End-of-central-directory signature not found., and 7z says Unsupported Method for every non directory file... Weird...

Okay, no problem, the binaries are only for W$, so the zip must have been done with WinZip, or some other strange archieving tool. I was at school, so I had a few time to try using Wine and WinZip on my X31. Great idea!

Wine went without problem, but I gave up when I faced the following error:

I really thank you, WinZip, for giving me so much fun this morning! :)
