## Execute script using exernal parameter

My script is:
C:\tools\winscp-5.21.5\winscp.com /script=C:\projects\test-sync-ftps.ps1
test-sync-ftps.ps1 contains:
option batch abort
option confirm off
open ftp://xxxxxx:yyyyyy@zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz
exit

I tried to use /parameter attribute but it does not work:
C:\tools\winscp-5.21.5\winscp.com /script=C:\projects\test-sync-ftps.ps1 /parameter xxxxxx yyyyyy zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz
open ftp://%1%:%2%@%3%
How can I solve it?

Thanks

## Re: Execute script using exernal parameter

I've tested your script and it works for me as expected.

Make sure your credentials do not contain any special characters that might be misinterpreted by the batchfile (cmd). Like percent or caret signs.

If you still have problems, please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Btw, it's confusing to give WinSCP script a .ps1 (PowerShell) extension.
