Unzip almost any archive file
Posted 17 April 2012 - 05:15 AM
The archive container is then a normal ZIP but the compressed files are compressed with 7z or another method not supported by the Mac OSX built-in tool. Then you get the behaviour that you get a *.cpgz file instead of your content.
You need a unarchiver that supports 7z or just the 7z command-line tool.
But non standard ZIP files shouldn't be distributed with the *.zip extension anyway to avoid the false try to double click expand.

No need for third party tools
Btw, you can create a cpgz on every Mac with 'ditto -cz'.

I've sèent a couple of hours troubleshooting the "installation failure" error... and after that session I've discovered the "unarchiver" bug! :-(((
