    Please indicate you operating system, version of C libzip library, output of pkg-config.

    If you're using an old libzip 0.10., please install bindings-libzip and LibZip with the same major version number (0.10.). The latest version of LibZip bindings is designed to work with libzip 0.11 only.

    If you're using Windows and pkg-config is not available on your system, consider using a Cabal configuration flag which disables pkg-config.

    Please run pkg-config --modversion libzip.

    If it prints 0.10 or 0.10.1, then you need to install LibZip 0.10.2: run cabal install LibZip-0.10.2.

    If it prints No package 'libzip' found, then you have to install libzip library first. Please use your OS package manager or install it from source.

    Only if it prints 0.11 or 0.11.1 then the problem may be related to the Haskell LibZip bindings.

    Closing this issue as invalid unless more information is provided.
