Block or Remove Edit Option

It would be possible to remove or block edit option in WinScp?

I would like my users use the winscp only to upload and download files and all of them cannot edit files in sessions.

Do you have control over software installed on their computers? If not you cannot block an edit option.

OK, I'll try to add the 'disabled editor' option to next version of WinSCP. Would 'secret' option in Windows registry be enough?

I was thinking about a release without edit option. I do not trust on Windows Registry and a option in tools menu will be easy to found.
In the other hand IT dept will be no able to install a release with the edit option.

I apreciate the time you take to do this.

I'm sorry, but I would not do special release just for you. You may compile one if you want, source code is available.
Anyway, since version 3.2 you may disable editor (and opening remote files) by settings registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Martin Prikryl\WinSCP 2\DisableOpenEdit to dword:00000001. Since it is in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, you may restrict users to modify it.

I'm so sorry, I couldnt find the key in Register.
Also I tied with F3 in register.
The key of course does not exists, WinSCP never writes to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. You must create it and set its value to dword:00000001.
