Problem with windows scheduled tasks

Hello, I'm having two issues right now.

Issue one is that I can't run a script that uses no passphrase for the SSH key that works when used directly on CMD on the task scheduler. The script for this log is:
open sftp://root@192.168.0.1/ -hostkey="ssh-ed25519 255 XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX=" -privatekey="C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Programs\WinSCP\Keys\prkeyRoot.ppk" -rawsettings FSProtocol=2 Shell="/bin/bash" Tunnel=1 TunnelHostName="192.168.0.1" TunnelUserName="root" TunnelPublicKeyFile="C:%5CUsers%5CUsername%5CAppData%5CLocal%5CPrograms%5CWinSCP%5CKeys%5CprkeyRoot.ppk" TunnelPasswordPlain=""
 
lcd "C:\Users\Username\Directory"
cd "/Directory"
 
synchronize remote -criteria=either -nopermissions -transfer=automatic -preservetime=all -rawtransfersettings[1] "Directory"
 
exit

The log of this problem is this one.

For some reason the same script I have used that resulted in this log works perfectly when executed directly on CMD.

Now my second issue is trying to execute this script but using a passphrase for the SSH key. This script doesn't work on task scheduler nor on CMD. The script for this is as it follows.
open sftp://root@192.168.0.1/ -hostkey="ssh-ed25519 255 XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX=" -privatekey="C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Programs\WinSCP\Keys\prkeyChloe.ppk" -passphrase="Password" -rawsettings AgentFwd=1 FSProtocol=2 Tunnel=1 TunnelHostName="192.168.0.1" TunnelUserName="root" TunnelPublicKeyFile="C:%5CUsers%5CUsername%5CAppData%5CLocal%5CPrograms%5CWinSCP%5CKeys%5CprkeyChloe.ppk"
 
lcd "C:\Users\Username\Directory"
cd /Directory
 
synchronize remote -criteria=either -nopermissions -transfer=automatic -preservetime=all -rawtransfersettings[1] "Directory"
 
exit

The log result is:

I would like to know how to, if possible, use the script with the passphrase on the Task Scheduler without asking for a prompt that will stop the script. Even if I have already used -passphrase.

Re: Problem with windows scheduled tasks

I do not understand the first part of your question.

Regarding the passphrase: WinSCP currently does not support specifying a passphrase for the tunnel. You have to use a private key without a passphrase.
