I managed to download zip30f source files. I successfully built an .exe file. Also I was able to make two zip files (.zip and .z01). I transfered these two files (binary transfer) to Windows platform and I tried to unpack them. Zip reports that the .zip file is corrupt - it just does not know how to handle multiple volumes.

The official sources for new things are the often-dead Info-ZIP FTP
and the more reliable SourceForge server:
Much of the stuff on my server is unofficial and/or untrustworthy.
(So don't come crying to me when it causes death and/or destruction.)

Unpack them with what? (Name? Version?)
Zip 3.0f seems to be in pretty good condition, but the whole
split-archive feature may or may not be compatible with non-Info-ZIP
archivers, so I would not recommend using it if I were taking an archive
to a Windows system where I had some other Zip-like program.
Did you try creating a single (non-split) archive using Zip 3.0f?
The zip program you have on Windows may do better with one large archive
than it will with a split archive. At least one (other Windows) program
should be large-file capable:
In principle, UnZip 6.00c could do the job on Windows, but I don't
know where you can get a Windows binary kit for it.

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
