Zipping up project zips with wrong directory & name

I tried to zip up my project via File → Package Project → Zip Up Project, and in the window that popped up, I gave my archive the name of “MathGame 10/9/2015”, and saved it to my desktop (I know that slash characters are not allowed in file names), and it actually ended up saving here:

As you can see, it is saved as “Desktop/Mathgame 10/9/2015.rar”.

Hey Jamendxman3,

I have not been able to replicate this in 4.9.2 or 4.10.0 Preview 1. Could you please let us know whether or not this is occurring for you in Unreal Engine 4.10.0 Preview 1?

Looking forward to hearing back from you, thanks!

I have recorded a video for you demonstrating how I replicated the problem, I did this in a seperate project from before, so it is replicateable across projects for me: - YouTube

Hey Jamendxman3,

Thank you for providing me with that video, I did not realize that you had to specifically have the /'s included in the file name. I have submitted Jira UE-22207 to our Developers. Please feel free to check back within a few weeks on the progress of this bug.


UE-22207 has been sent back as ‘by design’. The developers stated that this is done deliberately. Apparently, there is code within the engine that’s set to create file paths which do not exist.

Thank you.
