Experts,

Im having problems opening a zipped file, and getting the following error message.

Can anyone suggest a method to fix the problem?  (zip file attached)

Extracting to "C:\Documents and Settings\svdo1\Local Settings\Temp\"
Use Path: no   Overlay Files: yes
skipping: Powerpoint narratives 2\WS_30143.WMA  this file is not in the standard Zip 2.0 format.
   Please see www.winzip.com/zip2.htm for more information.
   Version needed value for this file is 63.
   Compression method value is 14.
error:  no files were found - nothing to do

Regards

It appears the file was zipped in a newer version of WinZip

7Zip sees the same problem as Unsupported Compression Method.

You will need to either use the newer version of WinZip, or have the sender rezip in an older more widely used Zip format
