Default Password protected files in code download zip

Hi,

I downloaded the code zip file for this book but when extracting it (using the right click| Extract All option in Windows) some of the files prompted for a password. I read the introduction of the book and, because one of the files was called Chapter13, skimmed Chapter 13 but couldn't find any mention of a password.

Could you please point me to where I should be looking?

Thanks

Stephen

I just tried to replicate this issue with Windows 7 and the files seem to unzip just fine. Is anyone else having this issue?

The PC I had this issue on was running Windows XP.

Subsequently to this post I did read something that said that the zip utility in Windows XP (and Windows Explorer in general) sometimes has issues where the resulting pathname would exceed 255 characters. In this case if the publisher builds the directory tree as C:\[somedir] and zips it to somedir.zip it can work fine. If, however, the end user is unzipping it into their My Documents (i.e. c:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\[somedir]) that could easily push some of the deeper paths over the 255 character limit.

Maybe that's the case here?

Incidentally, there's a similar issue with Sharepoint (or to be more precise Internet Explorer) where there's a 255 character limit on URLs. We've had issues a number of times with users creating long directory paths in Document Libraries then finding that they can save files but not open them again later. We tell them to keep directory names short and not go more than a few levels deep (explaining the limit and what will happen if they exceed it) but some just won't listen.
