I am using v4.3.4 (build 1428). I have setup the app to use .ini file. I see winscp.ini in the \programs files\winscp directory. But when I make changes, there are not saved there. The changes are saved someplace else because when i go back into app, the changer are there.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I'm also using v4.3.4, running on Windows7. In preferences I've set storage to use the ini file instead of the registry. I added a session and saved it but it does not appear in the ini file unless I export it.

I am wanting to import existing ini settings, but it doesn't work if I switch ini files, may this is due to the above bug or due to differing versions.

When I searched for instances of WinSCP.ini on Windows7 I found the program was updating a copy at:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.ini

Once I replaced this ini file version the sessions imported ok.

I noticed the Preferences option dissappears after first login.

NickW,
Thanks I found it. What do you think the ini file in the \program files\winscp is for?
Is there a way to change the app to read the \program files\winscp\winscp.ini?
