WinMPQ -- "Run-time error '6':  Overflow"

Ok...so i'm using WinMPQ to try to view the files in "Patch.MPQ" in my worldofwarcraft/data directory, but everytime I try to open Patch.MPQ up with WinMPQ I get the error "Run-time error '6':  Overflow"

I can only assume this occurs because the list that it is trying to generate is too large for the program to handle.   

Is there any way to tell it to only show me the files in /FrameXML, or some other kind of workaround to still view/extract the files from the patch.mpq?

Much thanks for anyone that cares to help Smiley

PS.  I was able to successfully view the files in "interface.mpq" and extract them to a separate folder, so I don't think i'm doing anything wrong.

Again, thanks for any help that is available.

Yeahhh....What Zifnab said is 'exactly' what I experienced.

I'm posting this because I want to know the solution to this problem too.

It's probably an inherent limitation in WinMPQ v1.63 that wasn't an issue until the file got too big (is it true that the patch file grows on each update?). 

The size of my Patch.MPQ file is 1.15GB

Mind you, thanks for supplying the program dudes  8)

I fixed the program... I sent an email to shadow flare about it but never heard back.
