I have a program thats been compressed with WinRaR that doesn't want to extract. The error message that I get is "Total Path and file name length must not exceed 260 characters" I have tried renaming the *.rar files themselves to shorten the name down but....heres the problem.....the original rar file that I just finished renaming is shown in the compressed rar file thus its as tho there was no renaming that took place. My question is two fold. Firstly, is there a way to rename what is showing up in a zipped file. and second if theres no way to rename something thats within a zipped file is there a program that will allow me to extract these files?? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.
