To correct this, remove the //_MACOSX// files from the zip and re-upload, or zip with the following command: <<code bat>>zip -r "$1" "$1" -x \_MACOSX<</code>> ==Wowmatrix.dat== **Wowmatrix.dat** means that you have included //Wowmatrix.dat// files within the zip file. To correct this, remove the //Wowmatrix.dat// files from the zip and reupload. ==Thumbs.db== **Thumbs.db** means that you have included //Thumbs.db// files within the zip file.

You can learn how to by visiting this [[http://support.microsoft.com/kb/141276|Microsoft KB]] article. ==Not a proper zip file== **Not a proper zip file** means that the zip file is corrupted, or was corrupted during upload. To correct this, recreate the zip file, and reupload. ==Individual files, not a zip== **Individual files, not a zip** means that you have uploaded files individually, and not in a zip file. Your zip file should look like for World of Warcraft, Runes of Magic, or Rift: ;/Addon :AddonFile1\\AddonFile2\\/Libs For other games, use the appropriate structure for the game, just please ensure that it's in a zip format. ==Top-level Files== **Top-level Files** means that you have uploaded files in the root directory in your zip file. For example: ;AddonFile1 ;AddonFile2 ;/Addon :AddonFile3\\AddonFile4\\/Libs To correct this, move all files within the addon folder in your zip file: ;/Addon :AddonFile1\\AddonFile2\\AddonFile3\\AddonFile4\\/Libs ==Invalid Layout== **Invalid Layout** essentially means that the directory structure of your file is incorrect. The directory structure should be something like: ;/AddonModule1 ;/AddonModule2 and not like: ;/Addon :/AddonModule1\\/AddonModule2 To correct this, simply reorganize your zip file and re-upload it. ==Invalid archive== This means our system was unable to open the zip or JAR file. Try using alternate software to create such archives.
