powershell session.FileExists($remotePath) foreach

So I've tested the generic code of $session.FileExists($remotePath) which works great but as soon as I put the statement within a foreach loop it keeps telling me file doesn't exists. Anyone have experience or a solution to the problem I'm having?

try
{
    # Load WinSCP .NET assembly
    Add-Type -Path "C:\winscp\WinSCPnet.dll"
 
    # Setup session options
    $sessionOptions = New-Object WinSCP.SessionOptions
    $sessionOptions.Protocol = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
    $sessionOptions.HostName = "server01"
    $sessionOptions.UserName = "user"
    $sessionOptions.Password = "user1"
    $sessionOptions.SshHostKeyFingerprint = "ssh-rsa 2048 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"

 
    $session = New-Object WinSCP.Session
 
    try
    {
        # Connect
        $session.Open($sessionOptions)
        $programFileNameList = Get-Content D:\program\programFileName.lst

        #Program List Error Check
        foreach( $programFileName in $programFileNameList ) 
        {
            
            Write-Host ("name: $programFileName")
            $remotePath = "/home/user/utility/Program/$programFileName"
            #$remotePath = "/home/user/utility/Program/program2.csv"
            Write-Host ("searching: $remotePath")
            if($session.FileExists($remotePath))
            {
                Write-Host ("File {0} exists" -f $remotePath)
            }

            else
            {
                Write-Host ("File {0} does not exist" -f $remotePath)
            }
        }
        

              
    }
    finally
    {
        # Disconnect, clean up
        $session.Dispose()
    }
 
    exit 0
}
catch [Exception]
{
    Write-Host $_.Exception.Message
    exit 1
}

Re: powershell session.FileExists($remotePath) foreach

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

There's a space at the end of every file path.
