Connecting with .ppk private key to a SFTP

Hi,

I need to connect to a SFTP server with a private .ppk key. I can connect with no problems with WinSCP GUI.
I am trying with CLI, but now luck. Could you, please, tell me the exact syntax of the command I must use.

Thanks

Here it is the picture, so the things are clearer :)

How to specify the private key with CLI, this is not the Host key, right ?

Description: WinSCP Login

1. the simple commands winscp.com /command "open user@sftp_srv" /privatekey=c:\private.ppk or winscp.exe /console.... work perfectly.

2. But I want to use a script file

winscp.com /script=script_file.txt and in the script_file.txt I specify the private key

open user@sftp_srv /privatekey=..... This does not workand the error is "Too many parameters with open". Appearently the /privatekey switch here is the problem because without it, the script starts to open the session - of course it fails.
Is there a way to use /privatekey within a script file ?

Thanks
