Hello Martin,

Thank you very much again for your great and useful software !

Using your software is part of my daily routines and so as a donator I would like to simplify the update task. I am afraid but the suggested approach to do this via email address is currently not possible in winscp, because the email field is disabled Sad - see attached a screenshot of the software misbehavior.

Any suggestions to make the field editable and working (current release Winscp 5.8.4)

Kind regards

Thanks for your donation.

The field is disabled, if you do not have WinSCP installed (e.g. if you are using a portable package). Automatic updates are supported only if you have used the installer to install WinSCP.
