Re: Run WinSCP Script From Bat File AS DIFFERENT USER

Many thanks.

Run WinSCP script From bat file as different user

Hi, could anybody help me with this please:

I can successfully call a WinSCP script from a bat file like this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\" /script="script_file_path.txt"

I can also successfully open a program such as notepad as a different user like this:
runas /user:my_user@my_domain "C:\Windows\notepad.exe"

However I cannot call a WinSCP script as a different user by doing this:
runas /user:my_user@my_domain "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\" /script="script_file_path.txt"

When I run the code, it does nothing. It doesn't prompt for a password, open WinSCP or run the script. If I add a pause at the end to see what is on the cmd screen it is a list of prompts and their descriptions for the runas command.

Many thanks in advance.
