Error HRESULT E_FAIL while loading a shape file

First of all I'm new on Arcgis so maybe I'm doing something wrong.


I'm trying to load a simple shapefile with three points creating a triangle:







I have generated from PHP a shapefile with the previous information and also created a .prj, .dbf, .shx and add them in a zip file.


When I try to use the option load a layer from a file and upload the zip file attached, I receive the following error (sorry it is in spanish)


No se puede importar este shapefile. (Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.)


I've tried to look at the forum and find some information about this error, but it seems that is a general error.


Any idea of what I'm doing wrong? I can use other tools to open the shape file (if needed i will tell you the name of the other product), but not on arcgis.
