Hello Jambunathan,

I do not have the odt document open.

>From the *Message* buffer, it seems that zip is looking for the odt file in
c:\Users\...\AppData\Temp\..., but the file is not present

In the org-odt-save-as-outfile let* block from which the error is thrown
(let* ((target-name)
        (target ...)

zip-commands are looking for the *.odt file to zip together with the
mimetype file.  But the *.odt file
is not there.

The only thing that is there is the content.xml, that contains the
the *.org file's text.  In fact, in the code, I don't see anything being
done with the xml files.  They are created, and then killed.

I am including the trace from the *Messages* buffer.
