Compressing Runtime solutions


Hi all

I am trying to send a potential client a copy of some solutions I have created.  Since they have not decided on whether to use FM or not, I am forced to send them runtimes.  The problem is getting them the runtime folder.

When I zip the folder, and then unzip it, something happens and I get an error message when trying to run the exe file (error message below).  I tried uploading to dropbox, but unknowingly that will compress the folder when I upload as well.  Google Doc's doesn't allow folder upload, only single files.

Question 1: Should runtime folders be able to handle a compression?

Question 2: If not, is there another way to send a runtime folder (other than putting it on a disk and mailing it)?

Details: Developed using FMP Adv 11 on Mac OSX 10.4, however runtime binding and compression was done on a Windows 7 machine using FMP Adv 11 as well.  Unzipping using Windows XP.

Error Message "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect.  Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."
