I have 5.0.7 installed and when I install versions 5.0.8 or 5.0.9, the program cleans all my configuration. The configuration is setted to a .INI file, and when I install a new version, the file still exist but seens that the program is not using it.
OS: Win 7.

Where is your INI file located?
Were you using 4.x previously?

Now I'm using 5.0.7 and the INI file is in the Program Files folder.
I've tried update to 5.1 and the same problem occurs.

I move de INI file from the program files foder to "C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\WinSCP" and then winscp found it!
Why the location of the INI file changed?
May I suggest a Import button from INI file, like the button Export that already exist?
Thanks!

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.
