SFX not working on Windows XP Professional SP2

Hi Cheeso.

I am facing a problem while executing the SFX from a network drive.  This problem seems to occur only on Windows XP Professional having SP2. 

When i tried to copy the SFX on a local drive of the same m/c it worked properly.  Is there anything that the SFX requires and is not present in SP2.

I also tried to execute the same SFX from network drive on a Windows XP Professional SP3, here it worked properly.  I am not sure what the issue is, can you point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

It's not a DotNetZip issue.  It's a .NET issue. I believe the behavior changed in .NET 2.0 SP1.
It's possible that .NET 2.0 SP1 was included in XPSP3.
You'll can check on it yourself.
