After creating a zip-file with archive_tar, i can open the file with winrar but not with winzip. The file is create on a linux server with following function:

function zipme($folder,$tarname,$files){
      require("tar.php");
      $tar = new Archive_Tar($tarname,"zip");
      if(!$tar->createModify($files,"","$folder"))return false;
      return true;
}

here are the parameters:
$folder = "xmlfolder/client/"
$tarname = "client_data.zip"
$files = array("xmlfolder/client/customer.xml","xmlfolder/client/products.xml")

what is going wrong? I can download the file but it is invalid when i open it with winzip.

Can you open the zip correctly if you rename it localy from .zip to .tar?
Which tar.php doe you use own programmed or the one from PEAR?
