Error message

Do this:

curl -O https://developer.xamarin.com/workbooks/csharp/roslyn/roslyn-syntax-trees.workbook

The attached error will show up.

Perhaps this is an issue with the web site handler?   The result is a zip file with an index.workbook file

We'll want client logs for this.

I saw that trying to open directly from FF download UI resulted in similar errors. Chrome and Safari were fine. Need to do some more thorough testing to track it down.
Comment 2 Sandy Armstrong [MSFT] 2016-12-01 05:17:14 UTC
Miguel, once downloaded via curl, can you open the workbook from Finder?
Comment 3 Aaron Bockover [MSFT] 2017-01-13 17:23:11 UTC
Zipped workbooks are supported. The workbook downloaded from comment #1 works as expected.
