Thanks for this.

If you get errors while extracting with WinRar, like "Total path and file name length must not exceed 260 characters", then use the advice here[0] to work around it.

> I recommend extracting it so that the base directory is C:\Atom or whichever drive you prefer, as this prevents long path name errors.

The issue I am referring to is not the same as the issue at the end of the post. I'm referring to an issue with the temp folder that WinRar uses, and not the path to which you are extracting.

One more edit: Working well on Win7 Pro SP1.

Strange. It seems to extract to C:\Atom fine over here, it refuses to extract to my desktop though, Surely my Desktop is shorter than AppData\Local\Temp o_O
