Hello. We need to siliently push WinSCP to many systems without user input. Usually we have been able to do this fairly simply (version 5.1.8 and earlier, win XP OS) but have hit dificulty in the 5.5.x series. We are consistantly getting a prompt now to keep or remove saved sessions.

Is there a switch to automatically accept this option? I did a search through the resources and saw the section about modifying the installer to add session information... didn't seem like exactly what I was looking for and for legal/policy reasons we're resitant to modify FOSS products.

Any assistance is greatly appriciated, thanks.

This issue is being tracked already:

I can provide you a dev version of an installer, if you send me an email. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

Thanks so much for the quick resolution. We will hold tight for the 5.5.2 version.
