WinSCP is an amazing program and I wanted to be able to continue using it without having to install Pageant along with it. I found that I was not the only person looking for a solution when I came across this executable to emulate Pageant and pass in OpenSSH authentication: https://github.com/ndbeals/winssh-pageant This simple solution worked great for WinSCP and I am able to continue using SFTP with my vaulted keys! But the goal was to not have to run an additional service which brings me to my request.
It would be great if there was an option to select either Pageant or Windows OpenSSH in WinSCP similar to KeePassXC
Thank you for your consideration.
