Host Key Does not Match Configured Key Error

I am using VBA to upload SFTP files into excel from WinSCP
The code below is modified from the example to match my requirements:

Now in the code below, i have removed the actual host, username and passwords due to security, but I do utilize them when running the code.
The host key fingerprint i have, i obtained form putty gen, when the key was generated. It follows the "Ssh-rsa 2048" format with 16 number pairs followed. separated by the colons.

When I get the error however, it only shows 14 pairs, even though my code has 16.
Not sure if there is anything else wrong in this code either. How can I proceed past this error?

Many thanks

    With mySessionOptions
        .Protocol = Protocol_Sftp

        .UserName = "Username goes here"
        .Password = "password goes here"
        .SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 2048 93:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
