I installed WinSCP 3.5.6 sometime ago when I also installed putty and pageant. At the time I had my private key file (ppk) in one directory (let's call this dirA). Some time later I moved the ppk file to a different directory, and told pageant where the "new" key now was located (dirB). Pageant, putty, and WinSCP were all happy with that. Today I upgraded WinSCP to 3.8.2. When I started it, it complained about the ppk file being missing from dirA. And yet it was then able to connect just fine.
After a period of inactivity the session timed out. I clicked on reconnect, and again it complained, and again it connected.
So how and where do I adjust so it no longer complains and just connects?
