trouble installing WinSCP 5.1.4

I have failed in my first attempt to install WinSCP on my Win98 machine. Ultimately I hope to use sFTP and/or SCP with the machine booted in mode 5 (Command prompt only). I tried the installation in Normal mode (full Win98).

I downloaded winscp514setup.exe with Internet Explorer 5 and verified the md5sum. If I run the EXE, I get two popups:

Error Starting Program
The C:\WINDOWS\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES\CONTENT.IE5\U9ZGT8FE\WINSCP514SETUP[1].EXE file
expects a newer version of Windows.
Upgrade your Windows version.

C:\WINDOWS\TEMPORARY INTERNET FILES\CONTENT.IE5\U9ZGT8FE\WINSCP514SETUP[1].EXE
Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied.

I also tried unzipping winscp514.zip and calling winscp.exe. This also gave two popups:

Error Starting Program
The C:\TMP\TMP\WINSCP.EXE file expects a newer version of Windows.
Upgrade your Windows version.

C:\tmp\TMP\WINSCP.EXE
A device attached to this system is not functioning.

The OS is Windows 98 Second Edition 4.10.2222A.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to get this installed and running. Thanks.

Thanks. I did that and succeeded in every mode except the one I need. If I boot full Win98, it's successful. If I then go to the command line with Start->Run->command, it's succesful.

But it fails if I reboot and select mode 5 (Command prompt only). In that case calling WinSCP.com gives the error "This program must be run under Win32". As I mentioned in my original post, I need this to function after I boot into mode 5. Is there any version that will succeed in that boot mode?

Thanks.

Sorry, I did not notice this requirement. Anyway, I do not have Windows 98 to test this. Also I never heard of anyone trying this. Is network available at all in this mode?
