I am trying to add new mods to my Minecraft server.  When I try to copy the CLASS files to the Minecraft_server, I get the message "The archive is corrupt" from Winrar.  What is going on?

Register or log in to remove.

Anyone/  I have reinstalled Minecraft server as well as WinRAR.  I have tried extracting minecraft server, adding the mod .class files then rearchiving, but that does not create an executable file.  Is this a "feature" of the new sever versions?

Is there anywhere else to get help with this software?

There are two different things:  
* minecraft_server.exe   <= executable, not moddable, not an archive
* minecraft_server.jar   <= moddable, an archive, not executable

You have to launch the jar with a batch file
