SAP B1 Addon - import light weight add-on 64bit but getting following error "Invalid MIME type"

Kindly help to confirm whether there is any compression tool like WinRAR already installed on this machine?

If no, please install it and test the issue again.

If yes, please help to check the registry value of "Content Type" under Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.zip as shown in SAP Note 3070823.

If the value there is not "application/x-zip-compressed", please backup the old value and change to this value and have a try if the issue still exists.
