Re: WinSCP(v. 5.6.2) giving exit code 3

Please attach a full debug log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, set Session.DebugLogPath. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Also, isn't there any other instance of a scheduled task (either the assembly or WinSCP scripting) using older version of WinSCP.

WinSCP(v. 5.6.2) giving exit code 3

This happens every 10-15 hours. we have given all the permissions to WinSCP.exe and dll. Also DLL is registered in GAC. To resolve this problem we need to reboot the server.

Below are the details of implementation:

The SSIS job is installed in SQL-Server 2012.
The OS is Windows 2012 server.
The WinSCPNet.dll version is

Its a production issue, heance please suggest the solution as soon as possible.
