I'm sorry I'm failing to understand what you are saying. And if you have
or don't have a problem now? But to preempt questions..

1. The *.exe, *.zip correctly have the case of files in them. So if you
did not get "Jamfile" as a results, check your extraction program.

2. The *.exe, *.zip are specifically for Windows platforms. They have
the correct end-of-line markers. The *tar* are for Unix like platforms,
and only differ as to the end-of-line to match the Unix platform.
