Restore RemoteBackup ZIP

I created a remote backup on a server. As a ZIP file. If I try to restore the same backup. The following message appears:

Hi Michael_Armbruster,

Thank you for the details.

To resolve the issue, please make sure that you have chosen “Microsoft SQL Server (remote)” as a server type at the connection window.
