windows 10, emacs 26.1

In dired mode I enter a zip archive by press enter


Now I want to delete one file and one dir inside archive. I mark it by d and press x . But I get this error:

No such file or directory, zip

enter image description here

    Your question isn't related to dired, as archives aren't opened by it in default, and even your screenshot clearly shows that you're dealing with a different major mode.

    The error message suggests you don't have the zip program installed on your system, or Emacs is looking for it in the wrong place.

Searching for program: No such file or directory, zip

This suggests that Emacs can't find the zip program. Perhaps it's not installed on your system, or is in a non-standard location.
