getnonfreefonts is a cross-platform script and expects a command-line
unzip(.exe on WIn32) that supports certain options. WinZip has a
command-line addon but the options aren't compatible with those of
the open source unzip. Is there a command-line interface for Windows
For the OP -- sometimes when a file fails to get installed it has been
blocked by some anti-virus tool -- it could be helpful to check your
event logs and anti-virus logs for clues.
