ZipFile method return strange characters while unzipping

Dec 10, 2011 at 12:47 PM


While unzipping the folder & files that have not English characters using ZipFile method (using windows explorer extracting files) the letters will be changed to figures, forexample if I have a file called Börs.pdf in my folder after extracting the folder the name of the file will be B+¦rs.pdf. But If I unzip the file using WinRar the files have the correct names. Is there any solution for that?

Best regards,

No , none that I know of.

The problem, I suspect, is that Windows doesn't know how to handle UTF-8 encoded zip files. WinRar does. DotNetZip does.

But anyway yours is a Windows question so you might get a better answer asking on a Windows-oriented forum.
