Re: Building WinSCP Without `Embarcadero C++ Builder XE6 Professional`

Hi Martin,

Yes, it was related to my other post.

I was on the fence of either building my own sync tool using Python AsyncSSH or trying to hack in a patch into WinSCP.

I found in interim solution for my local dev environment on Linus so its not such a pain where I use symlinks in my solutions.

Thanks for the prompt reply!

Re: Building WinSCP Without `Embarcadero C++ Builder XE6 Professional`

In the past, WinSCP could be built with the free version without FTP support. We stopped supporting that since WinSCP 5.0 (2011). So while it still might be possible, the code is not ready for it. And there might be new code added meanwhile that won't compile in the free version. So I would even suggest you to invest your time to trying that.

What are you trying to do? Is this about your other post?
Synchronize changes to source files that are symlinks

Building WinSCP Without `Embarcadero C++ Builder XE6 Professional`

I noticed in your build instructions (, that you mention needing `Embarcadero C++ Builder XE6 Professional`. Is it possible to build using their free version rather than Pro?

I wanted to play around a bit but don't do any C++ development and $500.00 is pretty steep.
