You will need 7zip to extract it (or something compatible).
Such as the cygwin p7zip program, or the native programs distributed by
the upstream 7zip project (google...)
However, be warning: 7zip -- and the 7zip format -- contain NO
provisions for storing unix style permissions, unix style ACLs, nor
Windows/NTFS style ACLs.
Therefore, if Corinna 'unpacks' you test file, she will NOT necessarily
be testing your exact scenario. So, you need to use a tool that cares
for such things (the exact tool will depend on the OS (and cygwin, if
OS=win) for your server, and for your client.
As I've already written, I used 7zip to archive it and copy it to
another machine and the name was intact - Cygwin programs on that
another machine had the same problems accessing the file.
