UNZIP problem

Hello,

I'm a newbie and I have a problem with UNZIP.
When unzipping any ZIP archive directly on QL, this error returns to me as shown in the picture.
I use UNZIP 5.32.
Command write EW win1_unzip; "-d win1_unzip_ -j win1_program_zip"

Thank you for the advice.
Jack

64 bytes missing could mean a missing QDOS file header, perhaps?
However,

Where did the file come from? A PC? Off the internet? Etc. It could be relevant, so please give as much info as possible, thanks.


Cheers,
Norm.

Thank you very much.
Excuse my English, translates Google.

I use the Qubide interface for Sinclair QL
For example, download files here: http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/games/index.html
I'm going to be a file camel.
With the Habi editor (http://hardware.speccy.org/temp/qubide4-i.html), I save the ZIP file to the card.
The program can not be opened.

EDIT:
You were right, there really is a problem in the header.
I saved the zip file from the QL header and the file is expanded.
I'm glad it works

I've just checked the zip file on the website by downloading and unzipping. I can confirm that the zip file itself is OK - the program executes normally.

I'm afraid I don't have knowledge of the Habi image editor for Qubide to know what issues there might be when using that.

The Habi editor has a checkbox "Options"->"Headers"->"Extract"

I'm pretty sure both "Extract" and "QL" need to be checked when moving a file from the PC to the QL file system and unchecked when transferring the other way round.

You should play with these settings, it looks like you have these wrong.

Yes it is, the problem is in the setup.
When saving files to a card, it is necessary to tick OPTION - HEADERS - QL even if ZIP files are saved.
I have used this option only for BAS files
And they were functional.
I saved the _ZIP files without a QL header, and that was the problem.
