ExeSessionProcess.GetExecutablePath() doesn't search in 'Program Files (x86)' directory

Hi

ExeSessionProcess.GetExecutablePath() doesn't search in 'Program Files (x86)' directory

Possible fix: https://github.com/mirror/winscp/pull/1/commits/0996f04cda7ca0d90febce16e0f3da986709d820

Also you can add search in %PATH% variable:
Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("PATH")?.Split(';').SingleOrDefault(x => x.EndsWith("\\WinSCP\\"));

Thanks,

Thanks for spotting this.

The ProgramFilesX86 requires .NET 4, so I cannot use it.
Also what primarily needs fixing, is the GetInstallationPath implementation.

Anyway, both are fixed:

Though note that you generally should not rely on WinSCP.exe in "Program Files". You should distribute the executable with your .NET application.

The lookup in "Program Files" is really only the last resort fallback.
