UNC paths are supported since 5.14 only:
Is the network drive with the documents folder mapped? That could explain it.Hi Martin, 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?
1) Is the initial local panel path (stored in your INI file) on the network folder?I'm having the same issue on a virtual desktop with folder redirection enabled. I'm launching the portable version (5.17.6) with /ini=%appdata%\WinSCP.ini. The ini path is not being redirected, but it still takes about a minute to launch. When I procmon'd it, WinSCP is querying the root directory of our folder redirection share for the folder contents which is tens of thousands of user folders.
I did have the UNC path mapped as a network drive for other applications that require it, so I unmapped the path and tried again, same result.
