How to use a non-alphabetic language character in a password
When creating a ZIP archive with Bandizip, if you set a password containing any non-alphabetic language character (such as Chinese characters), an error message is displayed as below.
If an archive in ZIP format has a password containing any non-alphabetic language character, the archive is unable to be decompressed on the system which is based on a different language than the language contained in the password. The error message is Bandizip’s proactive measure to prevent the problem.
To set a non-alphametic language password for an archive, you may use 7Z format which supports a Unicode password; select 7Z on “New archive” dialog box and enter the password you want.
NOTE: The following types of characters are available for ZIP archive’s password.
- Digit (0123...9)
- Lowercase alphabet (abcd...z)
- Uppercase alphabet (ABCD...Z)
- Special character (!@#$...)
