gethostbyname: unknown error April 2018 WIndows 10 update WinSCP portable

Since running the April 2018 Windows 10 update WinSCP portable no longer connect to my FTP server.

It throws an error saying "gethostbyname: unknown error".

Running the same portable file from a PC that has not been updated works fine, as does running a full version of WinSCP using the same config file.

Where do you run the "full version of WinSCP"? On the April 2018 Windows 10 machine or on the other one?

The portable and installed versions are identical. Either you have them configured differently or the portable copy is blocked by Windows firewall or similar.
Can you attach log files from both?
