Hey. I had to reimage my machine, and somehow I ended up without a C drive. I have an F drive now. I'm guessing that this is my problem. I've tried 3.6.1 and the previous version, and they both gave me the same problem. The error message is below...

Directory 'D:' doesn't exist.

Then WinSCP closes. I ran it again and got the same results. When I tried a third time, I get "EAccessViolation"

WinSCP worked fine on my computer before the rebuild. I love the application and would really like to have it working again.

When I put a CD in the D drive it works fine.

I'm running WinXP pro. As I said I have no C drive, but my primary partition is F. Running WinSCP 3.6.1. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!

I've spent whole last weekend trying to find a reason for this known problem. I was not successful. In attempts to repartition my HDD and to install Windows on different drives than C:, I ended with destroyed partition table. So I gave up Sad

I have prepared debug version of WinSCP.
If you want to help me, download it. It contains WinSCP3.exe and WinSCP3.bat. You need to run it using the .bat file. But first edit it so that following line points to path where you can write to
Code:
set WINSCPTRACE=f:\winscptrace.log

After you run the .bat file, make WinSCP fail. Then post the generated log file or send it by email to me.
Thanks.

Due to my **EXTREME** frustration with FileZilla, I will most definately do everything to help you debug this application.

Okay, I've run the app three times on this log that I'm posting. First time was with a CD in the drive. Second and third times was without a disc in D:. I put 2 markers in your log file to help you differentiate between with and without a disc in D:. They look like ############### with disc in D: or something like that. At no time did it crash, but the second two times it exited after it notified me there was no disc in D:. Thanks for your help. I'm hoping you can get me away from FileZilla. I'll email you the log file as I am unable to figure out how to post it on the forums.

What's your email address? It's not in your user profile, and you didn't post it.

The problem is hopefully fixed already. The fix will be part of the next release.

The beta version you sent me works like a charm. THANK YOU for rescuing me from the horrors of FileZilla. I enjoy the symlink support of WinSCP, and I'm glad to have it back Very Happy

I also have the same problem. Is there somewhere on SourceForge where I can download the beta version that fixes this?

Thanks,
Nick

Hey Martin. This version doesn't seem to like drag-and-drop for remote files much. Is there anything I can do to change that?

##EDITED##
I figured out how to use the temporary folder D&D functionality.

I think a large part of my problem is that I'm didn't simply replace the exe. I uninstalled winscp and am now running straight off of the .exe without a real install.

That's it. If you have used WinSCP drag&drop shell extension, it was uninstalled and new version cannot find it.

Yeah. The option where we copy to a temp directory for D&D works just fine.
