Ah! thanks for the heads up.
Couldn't find a bug report yesterday... Wrong keywords probably.

Re: New connection -> "Invalid access to memory"

Thanks for your post. This bug is being tracked already.

New connection -> "Invalid access to memory"

I am using WinSCP 4.3.0 on 32-bits Windows Vista SP2.

Whenever I start WinSCP and want to connect to a host that is not in my bookmarks, I get WinSCP.
Often the error "Invalid access to memory" is displayed.

* Start WinSCP
* Click 'New'
* Enter 'Host name' (
* Enter 'User name' (root)
* Click 'Login'
* Crash!

Saving the new host and then connect from the bookmark connects just fine.
