This is true for all zipped files, not just WriteLog.

What's happening is this:  When you unzip a file with WinZip or
similar program and see the display of files, you're only looking at a
list - not the actual files themselves.  If you double-click on any
ONE of the files Windows will execute THAT FILE ONLY, or if it's a
text file, will open it with NotePad, etc.  If the executable needs
other files to run properly, they won't be there.

Until you unzip all the files to a folder, they're not "really" files,
just a list.
