Can't get attributes of file 'file.txt'.

Hi,
I'm executing Winscp.com using a command file. I've created a session in Winscp.exe with the connection info. In the command file I have the following:
option batch abort
option confirm off
open CLIENT_SESSION
lcd E:\TEMP\edi
get file.txt
exit
When winscp.com is ran with /script="E:\Program Files\WinSCP 5.7.5\commands\CLIENTCOMMAND.txt" the download fails. The logs show the following:

But yet if I change the command to get file*.txt the file is successfully downloaded.
Any ideas?[/code]

It looks like the file file.txt does not exist in the initial directory /D:/bbsfiles. Maybe you wanted to download the file from another folder.

That was the first thing I checked. When I got the error, I manually FTPd to the server using the WinSCP gui and confirmed the file was in fact there.

Please attach a log file from WinSCP showing a download of that file.

I've attached them. I changed the script from using wildcards to the name of the actual file. The first part of the log is when I'm using the script and winscp.com to pull the files. You will see in there that it fails stating that MTSCDN.snd does not exit.
Further down is when I connect using WinScP.exe. It lists the files at the source which includes MTSCDN.snd. Further down it shows that I am able to download four files including the one that previously failed.
The version I'm using is 5.7.5. I've also tried this with the latest version of WinSCP with the same results.

I'm sending you an email with a development version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.
I'm changing one of the processes slightly where I'm passing in the source dir, dest dir, current date, host IP, user id, password and protocol as paramenters. I've loaded the WinSCPnet.dll.
I've created an array of two files M2MUMMDD.dat and M2MCMMDD.dat. I've then opened a session i.e. $session = New-Object WinSCP.Session $session.Open($sessionOptions).
I'm then looping through the file array and checking if the file exists $session.FileExists($path) where $path is /D:/bbsfiles/mucc/. This is the actual path. I had tried to use just /bbsfiles/mucc/ in my previous process but it did not work.
$session.FileExists is always returning false. I even added Write-Host $session.Opened to ensure that the session was in fact opened and it was.
I manually logged in using WinSCP.exe to ensure that the file was there and it is.
I'm not sure if this is related to this bug or not.
Thoughts?

This issue has been resolved. After working with "Martin" it was discovered that the file names I had in my script did not match the case of the files at the vendor. Once I had adjusted my scripts and tested I was no longer receiving the original error reported in this post.
This also resolved the issue I reported above.
Thank you so much for your help!
