Topic "winscp380 failing in console mode"

Author Message


I seem to be having problems running the 380 beta in console mode. If I run the two lines below at the command prompt, the one using winscp376 works fine. The one running winscp380 will flash up the winscp console window and pull it down before you can see anything. I have logged in with the GUI using both versions to make sure the host keys are set. Any idea what the problem could be?

winscp376 /console /script=content-update.tmp

winscp380 /console /script=content-update.tmp

Run the script from already opened console (cmd.exe), so you can see the output. Generally 3.8 have problems with "open" command. It should work if the open command refers to a stored session or when it contains a password.

Thanks for the info.
I guess I will wait until the new release when the open command issue will hopefully be resolved.
