Re: WinSCP closing itself when an update is pending

Thanks for your report.
I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.

WinSCP closing itself when an update is pending


I've used WinSCP for ages and have never had this issue until recently. When there is an update pending, and I choose to "close" instead of upgrade on program start, the program will close itself after some time (seems to be 30 mins - 2 hours)

I am fairly sure this is the cause because on the 14th November I was using build 11749, and this issue was happening. I confirmed it was not a one time thing because I tried many times before updating.
I then updated to build 11829 and had no further issues, left WinSCP running overnight and it was still open in the morning.

This is again happening now as I'm choosing to dismiss the current update. What I'd like to know, is this an intentional "feature" or a bug? If this is intentional, it's absolutely insane and ridiculous. What if the user just CAN'T update at that time? I'd much rather uninstall and go find another program than let it dictate how I use it - in this case, forcing me to update or have the program and all your sessions exit all the time making you have to reenter creds! Fun..

If it's a bug, has anyone else had this issue? I had a quick skim through the forum but didn't find anything related. Let me know if there's something I can do to assist in this case
