I've tried various permutations of the steps outlined here but my best guess at the proper order is:
- Set WinSCP to use Registry-based storage and close WinSCP.
- Copy the ini file to \Program Files\WinSCP\WinSCP.ini
- Now restart WinSCP.
Under Preferences -> Storage it will now have the INI file marked, but I don't see any sessions.
Could it be a version conflict? Or could the stored password info have gotten corrupted, e.g. if I used a Unix server to transport the file between two Windows machines?
