Hi,

Could someone point me in the right direction? I'm having a problem when doing a scripted install using a custom ini file containing sessions.

Concept:
Create WinSCP install with some presetup sessions for automating file transfers.

It's all working except that when I take to a new machine it always prompts for a password when connecting.

I'm using FTP and the username and encrypted password is set in the ini file. When I copy the WinSCP.ini file to another PC it fails to authenticate and asks the user to enter the password...

Any ideas?

It does not make any sense. Anyway, do you see the encrypted passwords in the INI file?

The encrypted passwords were in the ini file. I've fixed it now by forcing my command line to reference the ini file. I suspect that maybe the ini file was found, imported into the registry and the password changed somehow. Now that the ini file is specific it works across different machines.

Thanks
