Fun with vDOS (Emulation)

Since using backslashes is in violation of PKWARE's appnote I find this to be a bit strange. However, it appears that there is a bug in older versions of WinZip:

http://www.info-zip.org/FAQ.html#backslashes

older versions of WinZip (and, no doubt, some other clone zippers) stored filenames using backslashes as directory separators in violation of PKWARE's appnote, which specifies that forward slashes ('/') should be used. Newer versions of WinZip correct that bug, so if you created the archive in question, you should upgrade. If someone else did, you should ask them to upgrade.

Giving this be the case Doszip should (again) be able to handle these files.
