Hi there,

First of all, great product, been using it for years, thank you very much for creating something this good.

Secondly, a slight annoying bug (doesn't happen always):
If you have WinSCP connected to a SCP server, with keep-alives, and then put your computer to sleep, wait 10 or so minutes, and then bring it back up, wait a 10 or so minutes, WinSCP usually starts throwing Access violation exceptions (probably because the socket goes missing).


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.

I'm able to consistently reproduce this problem. If WinSCP is connected to a server and my computer goes into sleep or hibernate, when I resume the computer and switch to WinSCP, it starts throwing this unending foray of 'access violation' messages. I am forced to find the WinSCP process in Task Manager and end it. There are two messages that repeatedly pop-up as several numerous copies.

Screenshots (taken with some pain) are attached. I will send you an email so that you can send me a debug version.

Thanks for your report.

Sorry Martin, it looks like this bug had been fixed in a later version (I updated to 5.1.7). Silly me, I didn't update WinSCP [Talking about which, you might want to consider an automatic update solution, or at least download and launch the installer right from the 'Check for updates' function.]

I'm not a 100% sure it's fixed, but if I get it again, I'll report it (after updating and reproducing the error Smile ).
