Topic "Get only files without extension using script ..."

Author Message



I'm running WinSCP using a script which holds the actions that should be done.
I just want certain files to be downloaded to a local pc
THe files I want to download are those with a specific filemask, and without extension.

Below how the get-command looks like in my script:
option transfer ascii
get *PRODUCT*. C:\Temp\Files\

So, I would expect that alle the files holding the word 'PRODUCT' in the filename and have no extension would be downloaded to C:\Temp\Files\

But When I look at the generated logfile I don't see any file downloaded:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<session xmlns="" name="MyUser@MyHost" start="2017-11-07T10:18:00.639Z">

Is there anyone who can help me out on this one please?
Thanks in advance.

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
