I Downloaded and tried to unzip the Instant Rails .zip installation
file (InstantRails-1.6-win.zip) but I’m receiving the following error
message for several files:
“The filename or extension is too long”
Could you guys please advice. Thanks in advance!
Try unpacking it at the root of C:.
The archive is packed with an extra root directory at the top for some
I.e. the path is “InstantRails-1.6-win” => “InstantRails” =>
If you extract the archive into it’s own directory first you add one
=> “InstantRails-1.6-win” => “InstantRails” => …
When I try to extract it to my Desktop folder with the extra folder
will give up near the end. I tried WinRAR and the Windows XP built-in
extractor but they just hang trying to deal with that archive. If I
to my Desktop without the extra directory it works or if I extract it to
even with the extra directory it works.
