ACP Import not recognizing valid XML metadata file

Hello all,

I'm in the beginning stages of trying to create ACP archives to import documents exported from another system.

My first step was to simply go through the mechanics of importing an ACP file.

I first exported a simple ACP file from Alfresco, decompressed it, then recompressed it as a ZIP, changed the filename extension and tried to re-import it.

I have not altered the contents of the original archive at all except to decompress/recompress it, yet when I attempt to import it, I receive the error message:

"Failed to execute import: org.alfresco.service.cmr.view.ImporterException: Failed to find xml meta-data file within .acp package"

The XML file is most definitely there… what could be happening to cause Alfresco to not be able to see it?

If I re-upload the original ACP file without decompressing/recompressing it first, it imports without issue.  What could the UNZIP/ZIP process be doing to render it unreadable?

Thanks in advance for any ideas or assistance.

(Alfresco Enterprise - v4.1.1 (.3 61))
