Enhanced Zip action seems to unhide hidden directories

Enhanced Zip seems to "un-hide" hidden directories.

When using the Enhanced Zip command, we noticed that a directory that was "Hidden" changed to NOT "hidden" after the directory was pulled into a zip file by the Enhanced Zip step. We are using Visual Build Pro 8.7, and Windows 7.0.

Has anyone else noticed this Enhanced Zip problem?

(In contrast, we find that 7-zip, when zipping, preserves the "Hidden" attribute of a "Hidden" directory, after zipping it).

The built-in Zip/Unzip actions don't do anything to store/retain folder attributes.
