Subject: RE: [office] RE: Directories in Zip packages

Ah, WTF for sure now.

Having restored my file associations I looked more closely at what the Windows Shell does with all those apparent directories that have no files in them.

 1. It turns out *every *one* that has no content ends up being an unrecognized form of 0-length file.  That leads to treatment of the following as empty files: 

  Configurations2/images/Bitmaps (no final / of course)

 2. For bonus credit, I *opened* Configurations2/accelerator/current.xml (which auto-launched IE8).  Guess what?

   The XML page cannot be displayed 

   Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and 
   then click the Refresh button, or try again later. 


   XML document must have a top level element. Error

Makes sense to me, or as we once found useful to say, "Garbage in, Garbage out."

I see nothing here that would account for that except for a bug in how the shell decides not to make folders when there are no contents (notice in the image that Windows does not recognize the other empty folder entries, but this one seems to have confused things, maybe by being one "/" too far).

I am really annoyed that PKZip stole the Zip association from Windows and the uninstall simply left there being no Zip association at all.  I will have to do a blankety-blank system restore to get it back.  Oh, goody.
