registry entries for Windows 7


I managed to improve WinSCP integration with Windows (added FTP protocol and inclusion of SCTP/SFTP in Windows own file extension management) by including few more entries in its registry settings.

I guess other users might be interested. Here is my "winscp.reg" file (omitted Classes\scp and Classes\sftp sections, since they are fine as registered by WinSCP):


@="URL: FTP Protocol"
"URL Protocol"=""

@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\WinSCP\\WinSCP.exe\",0"



@="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\WinSCP\\WinSCP.exe\" /unsafe \"%1\""

"WinSCP"="SOFTWARE\\Martin Prikryl\\WinSCP 2\\Capabilities"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Capabilities]
"ApplicationDescription"="WinSCP is an open source free SFTP client and FTP client for Windows."
"ApplicationIcon"="\"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\WinSCP\\WinSCP.exe\",0"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\Capabilities\UrlAssociations]
