Automatic WinSCP Updates

Hi,
Apologies if this is not the correct place to post this...

I have donated to WinSCP a couple of times (over the $9) and I've entered the email address associated with the PayPal account form which I paid, but I never get automatic updates?

How can I resolve this?

Thanks.

Thanks for your reply.

I don't get an error, I just don't get automatic updates.

I just get a prompt that an update is available, and then click through to the download page, run the installer.

I assume the "automatic updates" are supposed to be different, or maybe my expectation is incorrect??

Please do this:

- Download and install previous version of WinSCP: https://sourceforge.net/projects/winscp/files/WinSCP/
- Start WinSCP.
- Go to Updates page in preferences. Delete your address.
- Close WinSCP.
- Start WinSCP again.
- Go to preferences and full in your address again.
- Make a screenshot and post it here.
- Make sure, you do not get any error when you submit the preferences dialog.

Thanks for the help, I got it working.
I hadn't entered my address on the donations page. I managed to find my donations email and clicked through, then it worked.

Great to have it resolved.

Thanks.
