Topic "WinSCP doesn't save last window state"

Since the last two updates, my WinSCP 5.1.6 (Build 3394) every time opens up at an unusual window size and the file list is filtered by change date.
If I resize the window, filter the list by name and then close and reopen WinSCP, I have the same start again.
So WinSCP doesn't remember my last Window settings.
What can I do to fix this?

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.

You had INI file both in Program Files folder (where you did not have write permissions). WinSCP was reading the configuration from there. But when writing, the old versions (you were using before upgrade) were writing to your user profile folder (due to Windows feature called file virtualization). This was prevented since 5.0.1 as it caused lots of confusion:

But the change caused troubles as well, as people had (unwrittable) INI files in program files, what made WinSCP show error now. So there was another change in 5.2 that made WinSCP fall back to user profile:

That's shortly why 5.2.3 works for you, 5.1.6 does not and 4.x did Smile
I hope it makes sense.
