Re: scripting/automation - no xmllog and timeout not working

For /timeout: It applies to sessions opened from command-line arguments. You do not have that. Use -timeout switch of the open command.

I can't speak for the "timeout" switch, but "xmllog" was only introduced in v5.x beta versions.

scripting/automation - no xmllog and timeout not working

1) Using /timeout=<sec> does not set timeout to provided value
2) Specifying /xmllog=<file> does not produce xml log

I am using version 4.3.5 (Build 1463)

Command line:
"C:\Program Files\WinSCP\" /script=WinSCP_ini.txt /xmllog=WinSCP_xmllog.txt
---> Does _not_ produce an XML log

"C:\Program Files\WinSCP\" /script=WinSCP_ini.txt /log=WinSCP_xmllog.txt
---> Produces a regular log

"C:\Program Files\WinSCP\" /script=WinSCP_ini.txt /log=WinSCP_xmllog.txt /timeout=45
---> does _not_ set timeout to 45 seconds. From the log file:
. 2012-02-04 08:03:54.334 Host name: <name> (Port: 22)
. 2012-02-04 08:03:54.334 User name: <user> (Password: Yes, Key file: No)
