open command not working in script, but works in console.

I am on a Windows 10 Pro machine.
I was on WinSCP 5.9 when this didn't work. I upgraded to 5.15.9 Build 10071 and it still didn't work.
No Log file is produced.
Here is what I did...

I cd to WinSCP directory and type in the following command:

> /script=C:\Users\artr\Documents\ReceiveTEST.txt

The script contains the following code:

option echo on
option batch on
option confirm on
open TESTTran/myTest
put -nopermissions -nopreservetime *.DAT

I get the Host prompt twice and then it exits the script, as follows:

echo on
option batch on
batch on
reconnecttime 120
option confirm on
confirm on

However when I type in the WinSCP command:

I am able to execute the open command as it is in the script directly:
winscp> open TESTTran/myTest
Searching for host...
Connecting to host...
Using username "xxxxxx".
Authenticating with public key "xxxxxx".
Starting the session...
Session started.
Active session: [1] TESTTran/myTest

I am then able to execute the other commands in the script.

Why is the script not working?
