    Yes I have read all the guides in this forum about how to zip folders for my repo (including hellriders) but I'm still confused. I tried both of these guides and got errors on command (cmd)

    PS. I am on VISTA and the folder I am trying to zip is a summerboard theme

    Can someone please either:
    • Give me a link to a video showing you how to do it
    • Give me Very detailed instructions (preferably with pictures)
    • Or give me an alternate method of zipping them as MAC readable

    I will +Rep good responses

    Thanks much in advance

    Do you use "zip"??

    What exact command do you use?

    Do you navigate to the folder where the zip command file is? Have you put the folder you want to zip in there?

    well... Is the cmd file inside the zipper folder called "zip" ??? If you renamed it to zipper you should do ---> zipper -r nameofzip nameoffile

    And I'm not sure but did you put a space in front of the word zip? Remove that
