Today I purchased Asp.Net MVC 3.0 in Action MEAP book. How can I download the book source files in zip format?

Re: AspNet MVC3 in Action Source zip file
Hi Mohan

The source code is currently available in the book's bitbucket repository at https://bitbucket.org/jeffreypalermo/mvc-3-in-action/wiki/Home - you can either check out the repository using a mercurial client or download a zip by clicking the "Get Source -> Zip" link in the top right of the page. This contains the entire repository (raw manuscripts and figures as well as the source code) - there will be a separate zip with just the source published once we get closer to completion.

Re: AspNet MVC3 in Action Source zip file
Hi,

Thanks for the reply. I downloaded the zip file jeffreypalermo-mvc-3-in-action-8fa11a411072.zip. But I could not unzip the file. It shows the error

With Winzip: "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid archive. If you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again."

With WinRar: "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged"

Can you please advise on how to download the file correctly

I'm not sure what's going on there....looks like it might be a problem at BitBucket's end. I'd suggest using a mercurial client to check out the repository for now.
