Hello Lilypondians,
I tried to import compressed musicxml files (MXL), but no matter which Lilypond version I am using (not all of them, of course, but 2.19.31/65 + 82), I always get the error message "De-compression requires the (missing) zlib module". The attachment contains a MXL file for testing purposes. According to Lilypond and also Frescobaldi's import dialog an MXL import should be possible. As it looks something is missing with the bundled Python.


OS is Windows 10 (1809), Lilypond 2.19.31/65/82 (in 3 different directories) and Frescobaldi 2.20.0 are installed.

P.S.: since the import via XML works quite well for me (but not in 2.9.65/82), the MXL problem never bothered me much. Unfortunately MuseScore has changed the extension from .xml to .musicxml, so you have to rename files you want to import all the time. Maybe you could add the extension musicxml for the import.
