I try to authenticate with RSA Keys. When I try to use the Key that perfectly runs with putty from the same machine I get these error (WinSCP 3)

Authentication log (see session log for details):
Trying public key authentication.
Key is of wrong type (PuTTY SSH2 private key)

Unable to authenticate

I tried ot gererate a new Puuty Key from orig. OpenSSH Key - but hte error still occurs.

What habe I done wrong?

Which version of Putty are you using? 0.53b or latest developement snapshot?

Use Puttygen to convert your key to native Putty format.
