Description Tester 2012-08-19 13:29:52 UTC
WindowsBase.dll library's System.IO.Packaging.PackagePart.LoadRelationships(Dictionary<string, PackageRelationship> relationships, Stream stream) method appends "/" to the beginning of relationship's target uri. I'm not 100% certain this is a bug, but this appending breaks EPPlus (http://epplus.codeplex.com/) excel's xlsx file parser, that works perfectly on Microsoft's .Net. The failing code is this:				

PackagePart part; // excel sheet part
PackageRelationship sheetRelation = part.GetRelationship(...);
Uri uriWorksheet = PackUriHelper.ResolvePartUri(workbookUri, sheetRelation.TargetUri);

In the above case workbookUri is "/xl/workbook.xml" and sheetRelation.TargetUri is "/worksheets/sheet1.xml", and ResolvePartUri method returns the wrong result: "/worksheets/sheet1.xml". But if "/" wouldn't have been appended, TargetUri would be "worksheets/sheet1.xml", and ResolvePartUri would return correct result: "/xl/worksheets/sheet1.xml".

Since http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.packaging.packagerelationship.targeturi.aspx mentions that TargetUri is a relative uri, I think appending "/" is a bug.

I just sent a pull-request fixing this issue: https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/478

Hope it helps.

I have the following code:

using (Package oZip = Package.Open(sFilename, FileMode.Create)
  string sBaseURI = @"./raw/";
  Uri uriFirst = PackUriHelper.CreatePartUri(new Uri(sBaseURI + "file1.txt", UriKind.Relative));
  PackagePart oPart = oZip.CreatePart(uriFirst, "text/plain", CompressionOption.Normal);
  using (Stream strmWirteTo = oPart.GetStream()){
    // Write the file

On Windows, this works fine, and the ZIP archive has a subfolder named "Raw".

On Mac, this code runs, but the resultant ZIP file does not show a Raw subfolder either on Mac or Windows. That's because the PackUri helper ends up converting the URI into /./raw/ which is an illegal folder name.

Does your patch fix this too?

Having the same problem here, although it took me a while to figure out what was going on (the debugger was breaking on the wrong line for some reason).

This causes problems when you feed the Uris into PackUriHelper.ResolvePartUri, which then raises.

I solved it for now with:

    Uri PartUri;
    if (PackRel.TargetUri.IsAbsoluteUri) {
        PartUri = PackUriHelper.ResolvePartUri(PackRel.SourceUri, new Uri(PackRel.TargetUri.AbsolutePath, UriKind.Relative));
    } else {
        PartUri = PackUriHelper.ResolvePartUri(PackRel.SourceUri, PackRel.TargetUri);
