VSCode not working anymore as external editor

Hello,

since the release of VSCode 1.31.1 I cannot use it as external editor anymore.
Of course I asked them for help first, but it seems that we need some help here.

Ref: https://github.com/Microsoft/vscode/issues/68057

The weird thing is that it doesn't work while pointing it directly to the .exe (or using "associated application"), but running something like
"C:\Users\morgy\AppData\Local\Programs\Microsoft VS Code\Code.exe" C:\Users\morgy\AppData\Local\Temp\scp21773\var\www\vhosts\domain.com\index.php
via cmd works like a charm.

So maybe one could describe how external programs are opened exactly so the vscode team can figure out what's wrong here?

I was not able to reproduce the problem. It works for me with 1.31.1.
Do you have 32-bit or 26-bit installation of VSCode?

That's weird. People over at vscode say it might be a broken installation, but I reinstalled it already. =/
I'm using the 64-bit version.

Thanks for reply.

I'm just curious - are you using WinSCP via Microsoft Store or installed manually?
Because I am using the Microsoft Store one.
