Has anyone been able to successfully define and deploy a Big Object yet?

I have a client that needs to use big objects.  I have unsuccesfully been able to define a big object in my Trailhead org playground.  Has anyone else been able to define a big object yet?  

I tried uploading a zip file via workbench for this trailhead.  All I did was copy and paste the xml into files and zip it up.  I verified the directory structure in the zip file:
https://trailhead.salesforce.com/content/learn/modules/big_objects/big_objects_define_custom_big_objects

It gives this error which I created a support ticket for:
Exception 2015936646-114094 (-407009801)

I also tried using the Custom Big Object Creator by Salesforce
http://www.sfdc.co/BigObjectCreator

I followed these instructions

After clicking the Deploy button instead of giving a grey bar in the instructions it does nothing.  No Big Object is created.

Okay, here is the solution.  The Custom Big Object Creator by Salesforce does not work.  Salesforce has problems reading zip files created by Directory Opus.  That was the error above.  I was sucessfully able to create a zip file with 7zip with the xml files inside and it works.
