Hi,

I've switched our server from 2k3 to 2k8, installed a new version of WinSCP (4.3.2 > 5.5.3) and copied my script.
After starting WinSCP and configured the connection (FTP address, user, password) and saved as session, I tried the script if its still working, it doesn't.

The problem, in the session I've setup a FTP connection. In the script I called this session:

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /log="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\scp_log.txt" /command "option batch on" "option confirm off" "option transfer automatic" "open my@session" "put ""%target%\%var%""" "close" "exit"


but in the log file I see that the transfer protocol SFTP is used:

Code:

I've also tried the old version, but I get the same error.
So, what is the problem, why is WinSCP switching from FTP to SFTP and why is my script not working anymore, because I don't changed anything.

I just wanna ask before I will change my script ..

Thanks for any advise!

Best regards,
Tobias

After checking the log file again and again and ag... I found a row that differs from the old log:

Code:
. 2014-04-17 11:16:24.681 Session name: my@session (Ad-Hoc site)


On your very good support side I found out, that I have to use doubling double-quotes! Which I forgot on the open command!

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /log="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\scp_log.txt" /command "option batch on" "option confirm off" "option transfer automatic" "open my@session" "put ""%target%\%var%""" "close" "exit"


Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /log="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\scp_log.txt" /command "option batch on" "option confirm off" "option transfer automatic" "open ""my@session""" "put ""%target%\%var%""" "close" "exit"


Don't know why it works before, but now I found the solution.
Thanks for your support side!

Tobias


[edit]
The double-quotes weren't the problem, because my used session uses the reg entry from a wrong user. I've exported my session to the *.ini file and use that file instead of the registry entry.
