The backtrace is along the expected lines. The zip command is failing for some reason.
Did you look at the *Messages* buffer? It is likely to give some clue on why the zip command is failing. Btw, if you have "cvd-modeling-proposal.odt" already open in an external application like LibreOffice, you may want to close the file first, before exporting. Closing the file will ensure that the file is not locked and available for re-writing. > Hello: > > This is on Windows 7 Emacs 23.3.1, org-version 7.8.03.
