    Why are you using Winzip? You should be able to extract/copy the the wordpress folder inside the zip without using a 3rd party program.

    When I download, I get a zip file. Even I dont use winzip, and right click and click on Explore, it throws error saying
    —————————
    Compressed (zipped) Folders Error

    The Compressed (zipped) Folder is invalid or corrupted.

    How to unzip downloaded file?
