## Process Exit Code: -1073741818

Hi All, apologies for the first post being a new thread question... As an admin on other forums i know how painful these can be.

I am using WinSCP being, triggered by Simego's Ouvvi automation product.
We have several jobs that use simple Get and Put commands to download/upload *.xml, *.csv, etc etc from various SFTP sites.
These processes have been running for weeks, in some cases months, without issue - but this morning many of them fell over, returning "Process Exit Code: -1073741818".
Importantly worth noting that the error is thrown for both tasks Getting and Putting files, and that it is being thrown for multiple different SFTP sites with different hosts.

Strangely, running each line of the arguments into WinSCP.com line by line does not result in this error 1073741818... And i'm wondering if anybody has come across this error code before.

Code being run is very simple... Effectively as below, the double quotations required for Ouvvi feeding it into the WinSCP's command fields piece by piece. Double double quotations around server path definitely required.

/ini=nul /command "open sftp://username:password:sftp.thehostinquestion.com/" "get -latest name.csv ""\\svrname\Data\name.csv"" " "exit"

Is there anywhere i could look up code 1073741818?
Have already confirmed it is not an Ouvvi error code and is being thrown by WinSCP.
Am trying to get hold of a log file presently and will update shortly.
