I am having a similar problem, and the FAQ below did not seem to help.
http://winscp.net/eng/docs/faq_scheduler

I am running Windows Server 2008 R2; The latest version of WinSCP 5.5.1; The task scheduler is running the script from an account with full admin rights;

I wrote a batch script to use WinSCP to connect to an FTP server, copy some files, and then exit. (This used to work for several months until recently...not sure what changed...possible an update to WinSCP). After the local files are uploaded to the FTP server, the batch file copies them to a backup directory.

The task scheduler still appears to run all the batch commands, because the backup directory is always updated. However, the FTP is failing.

I turned on logging from the WinSCP client (and script) to try and capture the problem, but I only get a log file when running the batch script--not the task scheduler.

I also configured WinSCP to use the .INI file.

===

Here is a sample log from a batch file session (run manually):

Again, this is the batch script log (run manually). When I run the script from Task Scheduler, it does not generate a log at all. Very frustrating.

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

I had also the similar issue, but now it is working fine with a minimum change while scheduling the task in the Windows Scheduler:

Pls find the below link:(Find the post by Shadrick0

Yes, if your script uses local paths relative to the script path or WinSCP executable path, specify the respective path in Scheduler's Start in field.
I have documented this in http://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_schedule

I was having problems getting Task Sched to run my batch file, too. I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2.

I had to do two things:
1. Under Actions I had to add the folder to the "Start in" input. This allowed my batch file to run, but I was still getting the 0x1 Result code.
2. Under General I had to change the Configure for: to the correct operating system (not sure why it defaults to the incorrect one). This got rid of the 0x1 code.
