I have a bat file calling winscp, which works perfectly with my credentials, but not from scheduler as it runs under a diff user, so I followed instructions of exporting my sessions settings to INI file. The bat file was modified to contain the following:

winscp.exe /ini="C:\myFolder\WinSCP.ini" "open" "put \\servername\C$\Temp\Output\*.txt " "exit".

I d-click the bat file to test, the sessions is opened but I keep getting dialog box to enter PW. What am I doing wrong? I can see encrypted PW in the INI file.

Thanks in Advance!

Is this indeed the command you are running?
It shouldn't do anything, not even start the session. You are missing /command switch before "open ....":
winscp.exe /ini="C:\myFolder\WinSCP.ini" /command "open" "put \\servername\C$\Temp\Output\*.txt " "exit".
