I tried today to extract a password protected ZIP-File and the result was only a Zero Byte Folder. I made this Operation then with TC like everytime when something not works.

It works for me so you have to be a bit more specific.
Zip is not a standard that many packers are fully following when using extended features. Some zip software do their own thing and do not follow the standard so they can add support for encryption and such.

It is not the password that is the probem.it is that the archive in encrypted using AES and MC do not currently support the extended compression method AES. AES is an extension to Zip and is not in the standard.
