Environment variables not recognized anymore

Hi there,

I've just upgraded to 3.76 and unfortunately WinSCP doesn't recognize the path for my privatekey anymore. I am/was using environment variables for the sake of transportability, such as:

%mydocs%\privatekeys\blabla-rsa2048.key

I guess it's gone lost somewhere btw. 3.71 & 3.76. Can you please fix this back?

I've just realized, if I click "Ignore" WinSCP can log on inspite of the error, i.e. the variable is resolved a bit later. All the same, the error shouldn't be there anyway.

Are you sure that it was ever possible to specify the environemtn variable in key box? I have tried older versions and it does not work for me.

:) I'm using envvar's for almost everything, so yes, it should have but I'm not sure. So I guess your functioncall silently takes care of the variable resolution..

After all, despite the error message envvars work somehow, but IMO the msg shouldn't be there.
