Got many .ZIP archives generated by PKWARE PKZIP25 console app.
Each of them packed with a password that uses Cyrillic letters.
pkzip25 & far(multiacrch) & winrar can unpack these with no trouble
but 7-Zip can't
people says it's because of PKWARE uses OEM charset for national symbols
Is there any setting/parameter that I have to switch to make these .ZIP unpackable
with cyrillic pass under Win32 GUI ????
pkzip25 probably uses Windows encoding.
7-Zip uses OEM. Probably I tried to provide the compatibility with some another zip programs and previous versions of 7-Zip
that used OEM encoding in past.
There is no switch now to change that scheme.
Thanks for information
Hope, some next release wil have an ability
to start "second try" additional step with pass modyfied (OEMToAnsi-AnsiToOEM)
in case of first try failed...
