I have created a ZIP file (using WinZIP Ver 7) on a WinXP system.
Then, when I try to access this ZIP file from my Win2K system (in my home network) I get a message saying: Could not open xx.Zip. Probable cause: file sharing or file permissions problem.

I can copy the ZIP file from the WinXP system to the Win2K system when I do it from the WinXP system. However, I cannot retrieve this file using Explorer when running on the Win2K system. In this case I get a message:
Cannot copy xx.Zip. Access is denied. The source file may be in use.

Note that I CAN access all the other files in the same directory that the ZIP file is in (the WinXP machine) from my Win2K machine. I just cannot access the ZIP file.

Does WinZIP in WinXP create ZIP files with special permissions?
