Hello,

I have to unzip a .zip archive that has been password-protected in Windows. I tried with unzip but I it generated the following message:
Code:
unzip: Encrypted file is unsupported
Can I enable encryption in unzip or should I use another application? I am running FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE-p9.

With best regards,

Lyubomir

AFAIK, there is no such support for unzip(1), check the manual. It should work with archivers/unzip (not tested).
Hi Juanitou,
Thanks for reminding me to check more carefully what do I use.
I have installed archivers/unzip but when trying to use it I was just typing unzip at the prompt. This of course invoked /usr/bin/unzip that didn't do the work.
Today I tried /usr/local/bin/unzip and this worked fine.

About the solution of Ordoban - I was thinking about it already after searching the net.

My problem is solved with the following solutions:
1. install archivers/unzip and use /usr/local/bin/unzip filename to unzip your encrypted .zip files. You will be asked for a password.
2. Instal archivers/p7zip and use 7z e filename to unzip your encrypted .zip files. You will be asked for a password.

Thanks for the quick replies.
Regards,

Lyubomir
