I had a programmer (not me) write me a program in c# that zips a folder. She used the sharpziplib and all seems to be working fine... execpt extracting the files from the zip file.
I am running XP pro SP2 and it seems to be SP2 causing the problem.
When I go to extract the file using windows it gives me an error saying "windows has blocked access to these files to protect your pc" it says that I can unblock the file by going to the files properties and checking a box labled "unblock" however there is no such box to check.
The file will open and extract just fine using winzip or winrar however we had this program written for windows so we wouldn't have to use a 3rd party program to extact it.
From my research it seems that there is probably some sort of "flag" or something within zip files that tells windows that its safe and the files created by the sharpziplib don't have it.
I can zip a file using the compress option in windows and then extract the files just fine, this only happens with the zip files created from the program.
Has anyone seen this and have a solution?? Is this something that might be added to the library so the files register as safe with windows??
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!
