    I guess you guys don’t test on Windows, huh?

    Windows has a handful of reserved file/folder names. They are:

    CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9

    Note that one of them is aux, and your plugin has a folder name called aux.

    Any attempt to install your plugin through the WordPress interface while working on Windows results in this error.

    Any attempt to unzip this plugin after downloading results in this error.

    This makes it impossible for us developers to use your plugin on a local development environment on Windows (using XAMPP, Local, WAMP etc..) and probably a Windows server running PHP too (unconfirmed).

    You’ll need to rename that directory.
