Little update

My config wasn't compatible with the older version. I think I used version 5.1.1, not 5.11.

I got rid of the problem by using version 5.13 instead.

PowerShell and version 5.11

I'm using version 5.11 due to an older system. I can't find docs for the older version.


$ScriptRoot = "$(Split-Path -Parent $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path)\"

$DLL = $ScriptRoot + "\WinSCP.dll"

Add-Type -Path $DLL
