I want to encrypt a zip archive.


using (FileStream stream = File.Create(Filepath + Filename))
 {
     DefaultEncryptionSettings encryptionSettings = new DefaultEncryptionSettings();
     encryptionSettings.Password = "123";

     using (ZipArchive archive = new ZipArchive(stream, ZipArchiveMode.Create, false, null, null, encryptionSettings))
     {
          using (ZipArchiveEntry entry = archive.CreateEntry("document.txt"))
          {
               StreamWriter writer = new StreamWriter(entry.Open());
               BinaryFormatter formatter = new BinaryFormatter();
               formatter.Serialize(writer.BaseStream, this);
          }
     }
}
When assigning a string directly for the password, the code works. If I assign the password via a string variable, the zip archive is not encrypted.

Thank you for the feedback. Apparently it was my mistake. It works fine now.
