The get command fails if destination directory does not exist

Hello.

The download via get command fails if destination directory (in my case on Windows) does not exist yet.
If I create destination directory by hand then download works just fine.
How can I make it work?

------------- DownloadWholeDirectoryScript.txt -------------
open sftp://someUser:somePassword;@someHost -hostKey="ssh-rsa 2048 x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x:x"
get /foo/bar/* C:\someDirectory\
exit

------------- Console lauched as administrator -------------
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP
C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP> winscp.com /ini=nul /script=C:\DownloadWholeDirectoryScript.txt

Yes, the destination directory have to exists. That's it.
You can, of course, use mkdir Windows command from a wrapping batch file, to create the directory, before starting WinSCP script.
