Topic review


Thanks for sharing your solution.

For anybody else who experiences this issue I have solved the problem.

The reg edit GPO was applying the following REG_SZ items

Both of these items are supposed to be DWORD, not Reg_SZ.

Corrected this & now WinSCP opens as expected. Hopefully this helps someone else out there.

Using ProcMon I can see when this regkey is accessed when opening WinSCP (screenshots attached).

This regkey
is altered via GroupPolicy to this value, if that's of any help to the troubleshooting.

WinSCP Error

Attempting to launch WinSCP on Windows 11 Edu x64 gives the following error
Invalid data type for 'AppsUseLightTheme'

I have checked this reg key, and the value is set to '1'

Any ideas?
