Using version WinSCP Version 4.2.7 (Build 758) (OS 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1)
From scripting command when I use get and a specific file name and its not their I get an "errorlevel 1" as expected. When I use get with fileName* using * at the end of the file and no files are present I get "errorlevel 0" when I think I should get a "errorlevel 0". When I enable logging on the get with * it shows a "Status code: 1". Is there a way I can use get with * and have a return of 1 if no files are present?

Checking for error when using get and file not present
When I use GET SpecificFile and the file is not preset I get an error return code which is what I would expect.
When I use GET SpecificFile* with the * wildcard and no file is present then I get a return of 0 even though in the log I see a Status code: 1.
