    What OS are you using? For Windows, you can download Info-Zip (will need to search online to find where from). For Linux, zip and unzip should be available through your package management system (apt, yum, etc).

    On Linux, you're expected to have them installed already: http://wiki.synchro.net/install:nix:prerequisites

    On Windows, they're included in the install package and get copied to your Synchronet "exec" directory.

    Yes, his google-foo sucks.

    Is it that or is it simply laziness?

    Maybe it is a combination of both!

    sudo apt install zip unzip for most Debian based distros. :)

    Or if you're a CentOS/Fedora person, then it's

    sudo yum install zip unzip. :)

    On Windows, they're included in the install package and get copied to
    your Synchronet "exec" directory.

    That's handy to know (I've never installed the Windows version, but I generally have info-zip kicking around. :)

    I'd put my money on the latter.
