Hi; sorry for the trouble.I haven't heard of that one before; this may be something best handled via tech support. If you open a ticket, someone should get back to you within one business day. Here's the link (you may need to create a support account):

One quick thing to check might be that there's enough disk space available on both the folder where you're exporting the zip and on the temp folder that's specified in the Tools -> Options dialog.

I was getting "an error occurred while packaging the project" each time I tried exporting my .camproj as a zip. Disk space seemed to be the issue.

When I cleared things out a bit and tried exporting again, it worked! Thanks for the solution.
