"Please remove the file." at startup

Hi!
I have just updated to the latest release of WinSCP and when I start it, I get the following error message:
Please remove the file. Otherwise the application will not work correctly.
What file should I remove?
The application seems to work anyway, so why this message?

Data:
WinSCP 3.6.7 Build 241
Using a private key generated with Puttygen 0.53b
Windows 2000

Best regards,
Hans-Gran Puke, Sweden

Since 3.6.7 WinSCP checks for obsolete translation files in its startup directory. Particulary for translation to your Windows default language translation, which is loaded automatically on program startup. Unfortunatelly there's bug displaing the error message (the file name is missing), if the translation is "very old".

The risks are small, but unpleasant. Particulary you may see completely meaningless texts in application menu, etc.
