"Check for Updates" seems to fail for me (I'm sitting behind a proxy server, which is configured in the "Updates" section of preferences). With logging turn up to Debug 2, all that appears is the following single line;
Code:
* 2008-03-19 14:52:15.421 (Exception) Error checking for application updates.

Any idea of what's wrong?

Can you try that with 4.1 and post full error message?

Well, there's a bit more there to go on;

OK, maybe you are using HTTP proxy that WinSCP does not support.

Quite possible, though the same proxy works fine with IE and Firefox. What standards does WinSCP expect to use; I'll do some digging.

For updated WinSCP supports, only simple HTTP-based proxy.
