Strange folder config for Windows standalone

Thanks Klaus. That is very strange. At first, I thought it was because of
a copy of a non-LC executable that I am including in the zip file but I
compressed without the file and still see the same behavior.
I copied the uncompressed version of the standalone to my WIndows box and
the Mac folder isn't there so I guess it must be the Mac compress function
that creates it. I wonder what it is about the standalone files that makes
it think there are Mac components in it?
Looks like I will have to change my release procedures by compressing the
Windows standalone on my Windows box instead of my Mac.
