, I just tried the new WinSCP version 5.17.5. It took about 5 minutes to launch. We installed WinSCP in our Citrix Terminal Server environment. We do folders redirection, when a user logon to the Citrix server, his documents folder is redirecting to a network shared drive. I believe this is why launching WinSCP takes long time in our environment since the default directory is set "documents' (no issue when using the older version like 5.13.9 as I mentioned before). I wonder is there a way to set different default directory manually when install WinSCP?
