Corrupted File message going from Mac to PC

Why zip it?  Is the error coming when you try to unpack the zip file or 
when you try to run the standalone?

I routinely transfer rev files (standalone or not) back and forth 
between PC and Mac either over my wireless network or by burning onto 
CD.  Incidentally, doing the CD burn on a Mac works better, since Toast 
is more forgiving for filenames than is Easy CD Creator, which does not 
tolerate spaces or lower case characters and which has to coaxed to use 
long filenames.
