Re: Pageant - couldn't load this key (unable to open file)

Please post a screenshot showing the configuration (preferences), PuTTY error message and Task Manager on the Details tab with Command line column for the Pageant visible.

Pageant - couldn't load this key (unable to open file)

After updating to WinSCP 5.9 on Windows 10, I get this error when opening the connection in putty.
Pageant is running and in Putty client path I have:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\PuTTY\pageant.exe" C:\Users\my.user\.ssh\id_rsa.ppk -c "C:\Program Files (x86)\SuperPutty\SuperPutty.exe" !U@!@

Reverting to v5.7.6 solves the problem.
