I downloaded the lastes file twice.  It appears to be a self-extracting exe.  When I run it, I get the message "zip file is missing"
the file is "CompositeApplicationGuidance-Feb2009.exe".   Can any one help?

That's strange. We haven't seen that issue before.

The exe is actually a self extracting zip that contains an other zipfile. You can try using a tool (i use WinRar, but maybe Winzip might work too), to extract the internal zipfile. The internal zipfile contains the code.

Hope that helps,

I passed the exe to another programmer.  He extracted it OK.  I have the files, so I am in business :)

One thing I noticed,  he is running Vista, I'm on XP.  Was the exe created on Vista?  Can this possibly matter?  Well since I have the files, I suppose its a moot issue.  Still I've never seen an extaction compatibility problem in the past.
