"Host does not exist" from script

I've read various other related topics, but none of them seem to address my specific problem.

I'm using WinSCP 4.0.2 (build 344) and created a script try.wscp as follows:
option batch on
option confirm off
open "sync host1"
option transfer binary
option synchdelete on
synchronize local J:\obix1\try /backup/try 
close
exit
I execute the script with the command:
c:\progra~1\winscp\winscp /ini=c:\progra~1\winscp\winscp.ini /script try.wscp
This results in the error "Host does not exist" and leaves me in interactive mode. When I then run the command open "sync host1" manually, the connection is established without a problem.

Any ideas?

Use /script=try.wscp

Thanks for your reply. And yes, that did the trick and I do feel quite embarrassed and awfully stupid :oops: Ik guess I wasn't quite awake when I tried to solve this little problem. The least I can do is send a donation, which, by the way, has nothing to do with my stupidness but with the fact that WinSCP is a very cool and valuable asset to the universe of Open Source software.
