There are no plans for that.

Drag and drop from 32-bit apps into Windows Explorer doesn't work properly under 64-bit XP. There's something about the 64-bit explorer such that when the item is dragged from WinSCP to an explorer window, a folder entitled (for instance) scp51328 is created in the explorer, and then WinSCP itself complains with the "WinSCP was not able to detect folder, where the dragged file(s) was dropped. Either ...".

I think that's the reason that the TortoiseSVN guys have an x64 version as well as an x86 version.

Anyhow, if you need access or work done on a 64-bit platform, you can get to me from the contact links at www.pagaros.com.au.

It should be enough to make 64-bit drag&drop shell extension. It is planned. TortoiseSNV is Explorer-plugin not a regular application.

Thanks. I will do once I have anything to test.

I'm using WinSCP 4.1.8 on Windows Vista x64, and I get this same error:

"WinSCP was not able to detect folder, where the dragged files(s) was dropped. etc."

It appears to work just fine when I drag files from WinSCP to the desktop (a 64-bit process) or to Windows Explorer x64, but when I try to drag files to the 32-bit Windows Explorer (which I use sometimes for compatibility with certain 32-bit Explorer extensions), I get this error.

Is it possible to install both the 32-bit and 64-bit WinSCP Explorer extensions on x64 Windows? (Many other apps do this.)

Thanks,
prikryl

Thanks for your post. This issue has been added to tracker.
Can you provide me your email address, so I can send you a debug version of WinSCP to test this? I do not have a 64-bit system available. If you do not want to post the address here, you can send me an email. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link to this topic. Thanks.

How big a donation would it take to get you to build a 64 bit version that handles SMB shares??

You do not have that amount Wink

This totally need to be offered in x64 bit. As one of the better FTP clients I would think skimping on this is wrong.
In fact all programs should be written for 64 bit computers. It doesn't make sense not to. Any program intending to run in an x64 environment should run native. Even if no serious performance benefit is evident, there certainly is a benefit. Function, operation, and integration with the OS software and a few benefits of having it run native. Sure it works as a 32bit app, but it would play nicer as a x64 app on a x64 machine.

Has this changed? It would be nice to get a x64 version of this.

The best way is use the portable version. Work well.

First of all, thank you for the nice product!

But this topic is almost FIVE years old.
Is there any chances to see WinSCP x64?

Thanks!

We cannot make 64 bit version of WinSCP in near future due to technical constraints.

Anyway, what advantage would 64 bit version bring to you?

If properly optimized, a 64 bit application would bring increased speed in processing the scripts that handle downloading large numbers of files from an FTP server. Yes, it requires more memory for these optimizations, but real power users generally have plenty of memory to spare for these things.

I am currently searching for, and willing to pay for a good quality, fast, properly optimized native 64 bit FTP client. I am passing on WinSCP because it does not support 64 bit. I am passing on FileZilla for the same reason. Both are slow when compared to a product like Pragma Fortress, SmartFTP, etc.

"Technical constraints" usually means there isn't a programmer that uses the required platform, nor has the expertise to optimize for 64 bit. Since that expertise doesn't exist here, I suppose I'll keep looking.

"Technical contraints" means that the first stable version of 64 bit C++ Builder was released only a month ago.

It's not as trivial as to just compile it.

We use WinSCP with SSIS, since SSIS does not have a Secute FTP component. Since WinSCP is a 32bit app, we need to run the whole SSIS in 32 bit and loads suffer from teh performance. It would be beneficial if we could run the whole project in 64bit.

I suppose you are referring to WinSCP .NET assembly, not WinSCP itself.
While the assembly is made available in binary form for 32 bit only, it should be trivial to download the source code and compile it for 64 bit yourself. But I admit I haven't tested it. Will do.

Altap Salamander 3.0 x64 is missing WinSCP!

Hi,

I'm using Altap Salamander on my Windows 7 x64 System every day.

I just bought the WinSCP-plugin on the Altap Website and then noticed, that the plugin doesn't exist in the x64-Version of Altap Salamander Sad

I tried to copy the WinSCP plugin from Version 2.54 (32 bit) but Altap Salamander reports that it cannot use 32 bit plugins in a x64 application.

The technical constrains mentioned on the Altap website were that the 64bit compiler was not available. This has change some month ago, didn't it ?

When will a 64bit version of the plugin for Altap Salamander available ?

Thanx for a reply,
Andy

We are going to release stable version of 5.2.x branch in new few days/weeks. Than we will start working on a new branch, for which we plan to upgrade to the latest version of C++ Builder with x64 support. Then we will be able to assess a feasibility of implementing support for x64.

Actually, I do not get this. WinSCP .NET assembly has platform set to AnyCPU, so it can load as 64-bit into 64-bit process. What particular problems are you having with this?
