I have given up on using Rev zip feature and use shell for Mac and
compress/decompress for Win.
Here is a small snippet I last used in on of my apps. If anything is
unclear, just holler.
if the platform is "MacOS" then
-- MAKE SURE TO ESCAPE THE SPACES
put tAppPathParent into tShellPath
replace " " with "\ " in tShellPath
put "unzip -o " & tShellPath & tDownloadedFile & " -x *_M*"
if the platform is "Win32" then
put url ("binfile:" & tDownloadedFile) into tData
put decompress(tData) into tData
put tData into URL "binfile:Engine Updater.exe"
