Topic "running winscp in restricted environment"

Author Message


I am currently sitting in an Internet cafe trying to get WinSCP 3.61 to work. I am able to establish the connection, type my login but after that get thrown out by a message box telling "Directory A: doesn't exist". Well, I did not specify anywhere Directory A: in the Preferences.
They are running here WinXP Home Edition with a restriction that the user is only able to see the folders "Shared Docs" and "Users Docs". I downloaded the winscp.exe to the "Users Docs" folder and start it directly from that place.
Should this be working? Any idea what to do about it?

I hope I have solved this already. Fix will be part of the next release. There's no workaround for current version Sad
