The INSTALL.txt of CMFPlone says this about WinZip:

* Unpacking the Plone archive with WinZip will not work: WinZip will truncate
  filenames without warning you. 7-Zip is a good open source alternative for
  Windows that you can use instead: http://www.7-zip.org

That does not look like the same error you are getting, so the other
answers are probably better, but still using 7-zip might solve this.

My 2 cents.
