MC cannot unpack file encrypted zip from 7z or WinRAR
« on: August 09, 2019, 06:24:17 »
Hi Mathias,

This is scenarios I setup for 7z and WinRar when creating file zip with password and default encrypt mode.
Case 1: For 7z FileManager:
  • Add file and Select ZIP format
  • Enter Password
  • Leave default encryption mode is AES256 (if changing from AES256 to ZipCrypto then MC can unpack well)
  • Save file zip

Case 2: For WinRAR FileManager:
  • Add file and Select ZIP format
  • Enter Password
  • Leave default encryption mode of WinRAR (if changing from default to Zip Legacy Encryption in WinRAR then MC can unpack well)
  • Save file zip

When unpack zip file then MC shows dialog to enter password but there is no extracted files.

If I use WinRAR or 7z then I can unpack this zip file from 2 cases well.
