Unarchive fails to restore 'sym-lib-table' [solved]

Trying to ‘unarchive’ a project, I found I kept receiving a ‘Rescue library…’ message.

After some research, I found that the unarchive did NOT unzip the “sym-lib-table” file. The file was present in the .Zip file. WinZIP works fine; but, not the built-in unarchive function.

My Version info:

wxWidgets 3.0.4

Thank you, I’ll wait for the release. I’ll use my WinZIP, until then.
