4.3.5 Stored host name in Scripting

Server: windows 2003R2 server sp2
Winscp: 4.3.5
Using scripting/automation

Script:
echo option batch abort > c:\windows\Harvardftp.txt
echo open HPHC >> c:\windows\Harvardftp.txt
echo cd 837/toHPHC >> c:\windows\Harvardftp.txt
echo put HPHC1425_HPHC142501_P_%year%%month%%day%_%nhour%%xminute%.837 >> c:\windows\Harvardftp.txt
echo bye >> c:\windows\Harvardftp.txt

When I run my script to connect to a stored session it will not connect to a stored session "HPHC". When I try to just double click on the stored session in the gui it connects fine. I compared both scripting log and gui log and noticed a difference. The "host name" is not carrying through in the script. You can see in the logs below that the scripted log tries to connect to a the host name which is really the session name. And the Gui connects to the actual host name. This was a fresh install of 4.3.5 on a new server.

Re: 4.3.5 Stored host name in Scripting

The WinSCP instance running the script does not see the stored session.

You are probably using different local account that when you use GUI.

Please read FAQ:

Re: 4.3.5 Stored host name in Scripting

Re: 4.3.5 Stored host name in Scripting

OK, but you are using registry in script:
Configuration: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\

but INI file in GUI:
Configuration: C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.ini
