"zip" is the Info-zip program to create and manipulate zip files.I know that (and I already knew it), but .... note to the maintainers of the documentation - please state it explicitly; as I indicated I got the "'zip' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." message as it isn't a standard operating system file. Someone reading this who isn't a developer may not know what's meant. Also please add a note to the effect that its folder *must* be in your path. Just adding a symbol pointing to zip.exe is not sufficient. Presumably there is something else important in the folder.
How far do you take this Kerry? Insist that java be on the $PATH? That permissions be set for local directories?
There has to be a break point somewhere."it isn't a standard operating system file." It is, on my Operating System? Shades of grey everywhere?
