Topic "Error: WinSCP crashes when trying to open new connection"

Author Message

Hi. I'm using brand new WinSCP 5.5.0 build 3839. I think I found a bug when using connection tabs. When I have active connection which transfers a lot of large files (about 25 MiBs each) and try to open new connection, WinSCP crashes with Unallowed access to memory error. It seems that the transfers somehow runs without interrupt, but the small window with this error can't be removed. Everytime you press OK, it appears again and again. The only way how to exit from WinSCP is to kill it via Windows task manager.

If that bug is settings specific, for the transfers I'm using the queue limited to 5 files at once. If there'll be needed some other details, please let me know.

Thanks, Petr
