WinSCP.com on Windows 10 Home

Hello,

I have been running WinSCP.com on Windows 10 Pro without any issues.
Have tried running it on Windows Home and I get the following Windows error:

"This app can’t run on your PC
To find a version for your PC check with check with the software publisher".

Is WinSCP.com supposed to work on the Windows Home version?

Would appreciate your assistance.

I do understand that WinSCP.com would be an old DOS 16 bit program.
Could this mean that in order to run it might have to have the Windows NTVDM feature enabled in order to be able to run in a Windows 10 Home (32 bit) environment?

winscp.com is a regular Windows 32-bit console application, as any other. It does not have any special requirements.

Maybe your copy is corrupted. Please try to download it again.

Have downloaded it a number of times and it does not seem to work on that one computer running Windows Home version. It does however work perfectly on a number of Windows Pro version computers. I am really puzzled by this.

Does WinSCP.exe work?

Does WinSCP.com start, if you rename it to e.g. WinSCPcom.exe? (it won't work, but it should at least display an error message)

Yes! Winscp.exe does work perfectly!
Have not tried the renaming of winscp.com to winscp.com.exe yet, as that computer isn't next to me right now.

When renaming winscp.com to winscpcom.exe I get the same error message!
Any ideas?

Can you post your copy of winscp.com as an attachment (zipped)?

Hi Martin,

I'm very sorry for the delay.
I have asked for a copy of the winscp.com file (this is on a remote computer) and was told that the file was of zero bytes! Not sure what is happening there, because to the best of my knowledge the installation was properly done.

Will get back to you as soon as I find out more.

Hi Martin,
It would seem that something may have gone wrong with the installation of winscp.com, which I know, is very strange and unusual. Unfortunately, I cannot give you more details, but I have heard that the installation worked fine on another computer and I know it works, as I have tried it myself. Thank you for your time and congrats for having developed this very useful, efficient software.
