Script can't find certain files

I am running WinSCP 4.2.7 build 758 on WinXP Pro SP3. I have a script which runs from a batch file which works just fine except certain files are reported as non-existent when they actually exist. Here is the script (weblists.bat) with password removed for security:
# Automatically answer all prompts negatively not to stall
# the script on errors
 option batch on
# Disable overwrite confirmations that conflict with the previous
 option confirm off
# Connect using a password
 open equimax:password@equimax.com
# Change remote directory
cd /htdocs/equimax/home
# Force binary mode transfer
option transfer binary
# Upload file to the remote directory
put c:\netfiles\weblists\weblists.zip
put c:\netfiles\weblists\C_LIST_D.php
put c:\netfiles\weblists\CANDS_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\CLIENTS_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\J_LIST_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\JLSUB_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\JOBS_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\LISTCAND_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\RECTS_D.PHP
put c:\netfiles\weblists\empnojob.txt
# Disconnect
close
# Exit WinSCP
exit
The batch file command which runs this script is:
"c:\program files\winscp3\winscp.com" /script=c:\netfiles\scpscripts\weblists.txt
The files named weblists.zip and empnojob.txt transfer just fine. The others cannot be found. Here are the results as shown in the command window:
C:\Documents and Settings\Seth>"c:\program files\winscp3\winscp.com" /script=c
netfiles\scpscripts\weblists.txt

Anyone know why the PGP files are not being found? I have tried putting path in quotes, tried sending files without underscores.

Stumped. :?

Re: Script can't find certain files

If you run WinSCP GUI and navigate to the folder, do you see the files? Can you upload them?

No automatic retry

Hi,

I'm running the same version. The problem is that I have the following problem while running the copy-script (from a remote server to a local machine) from time to time:
3.png     |          4 KiB |    6.7 KiB/s | binary | 100%
4.png     |          0 KiB |    3.2 KiB/s | binary |   0%
Error transferring file '/folder2/folder.loc/web/4.png'.
Copying files from remote side failed.
Can't open data connection.
(A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip, Ski(p) all: Abort
Session 'test' closed.
No session.
And next time the process could go with no errors at all. So how can I use (R)etry-option instead of default (A)bort one? I checked up with the settings and didn't find anything about it so far. Thank you.

And I am not sure if this works:

Bug fix: When file transfer failed with FTP protocol, whole batch was interrupted, without an option to retry or skip the file transfer.

It happens again and again for different servers and different files and with the same error - can't open data connection and then the session gets closed instead of retrying/skipping file copying automatically. If it is fixed, please, tell me how explicitly to turn that option on in a script or ini-file. Thank you.

Re: Script can't find certain files

Boy do I feel dumb. I work with PHP files so often that I completely missed the mistake, even though I looked at it multiple times. Thanks so much for solving the problem for me. Sorry to have bothered you.

Re: Script can't find certain files

Hi I am new to WinSCP, I am using WinSCP with VB.NET.
I just want to download a file from remote directory to local directory (C:\Document And Settings), but I am below error.
Can't get attributes of file 'C:\Documents'.
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server: No such file
Request code: 7
Please suggest a solution. Thanks

Below is my code:
Private Function WinSCPDownload() As Boolean
    Try
        If (Login()) Then
 
            With WinSCP.StandardInput
 
                .WriteLine("cd /data/test/out")
                .WriteLine("ls *-International-*.xml")
     
                .WriteLine("get -nopreservetime *-International-*.* C:\Documents and settings\")
 
                  .Close()
 
            End With
 
        End If
 
    Catch ex As Exception
        Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message)
    End Try
 
End Function
Error:
winscp> cd /data/test/out
/data/test/out
winscp> ls *-International-*.xml
winscp> get -nopreservetime *-International-*.* C:\Documents and settings\
Can't get attributes of file 'C:\Documents'.
No such file or directory.
