Unfortunately there are lots of bugs in the collection for
.net 1.0 and .net 1.1. I think it has been fixed for the next Visual Studio
release 2005 Whidbey/Express edition.

You should consider this one for the 1.0 and 1.1 framework.

I tried exploring a zip file using the ZipFile class and its working fine
here.. I am not able to reproduce your problem.

Have you tried with other zip files to check if the zip file could have
been corrupted ?

If you still have the problem, could you tell us what path was passed to
the function ? I mean, was is it a file in the current folder(filename
alone passed), or one on a different folder etc
