Because I am using the Microsoft Store one.

I have tried Store installation now. And it also works just fine.
Did you on the other hand test it with a normal installation of WinSCP?


Nope, but currently I'm 99% sure that the issue is related to vscode, because it only occurs with the user installer (https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/68057#issuecomment-465204156) and there's another user with the same error, but without the use of WinSCP.

Guess we can leave this here for now then. Thanks very much for help!

Do you have 32-bit or 26-bit installation of VSCode?


That's weird. People over at vscode say it might be a broken installation, but I reinstalled it already. =/
I'm using the 64-bit version.

VSCode not working anymore as external editor

Hello,

since the release of VSCode 1.31.1 I cannot use it as external editor anymore.
Of course I asked them for help first, but it seems that we need some help here.

Ref: https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/68057

The weird thing is that it doesn't work while pointing it directly to the .exe (or using "associated application"), but running something like
"C:\Users\morgy\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe" C:\Users\morgy\AppData\Local\Temp\scp21773\var\www\vhosts\domain.com\index.php
via cmd works like a charm.

So maybe one could describe how external programs are opened exactly so the vscode team can figure out what's wrong here?
