can't unzip the .js files. Windows security warning.

can't unzip the .js files. Windows security warning.

I am unable to unzip any of the .js files from the main PowerGallery zip file. I keep getting a windows error message that says:

Windows Security Warning

Windows found that this file is potentially harmful.

To help protect your computer, Windows has blocked access to this file.

How can I get around this? I'm using windows vista home premium.

Is this the security on your machine that you can disable temporarily? If you can you should disable this, then extract the files from the zip, then you can enable it again. Where are you downloading and extracting the files to? You should be downloading the .zip file to a place on your computer then you should extract the contents to a folder in your web root. If you are getting this error when using a particular browser you should try using another browser to see if makes a difference.

Eric, I had to send the zip file to someone else, who was able to extract the .js files. I have never had this happen before and I've had windows vista home premium installed for years. It's okay now, but I could not extract them to my hard drive, or an external hard drive. I own many WA extensions, and have never experienced this before. Very weird...

Indeed very strange. I can't imagine why you would not be allowed to unzip the js files. I did not notice until now that it was you that was having the trouble with the installer, I'm glad that you have now worked the issue out.

Well, I kind of worked it out. Having to send the files to someone else to unzip and upload to my server isn't exactly the kind of thing I want to do on a regular basis :) But ... at least there WAS a solution!

I agree, it seems odd that you would have to do that. How were the files given back to you? Whatever is blocking you from extracting the files should be a security feature that you could disable temporarily. You might also be able to use another tool like 7zip to extract the files for you.

An associate of mine purchased the product and emailed the entire zip file to me. It was intact. He did the same with PowerStore and I had no problems. I actually have no idea how to disable this feature because I've never encountered it before...
