Topic "Bug ? No override confirmation on scripting with option on"

Author Message


I'am using WinSCP (version 4.1.9 after a try with 4.1.7) on Windows Vista 32, in scripting mode.
I use put command to upload a file to the server and wait for a overwrite confirmation because the file already exists on it. But there is no confirmation although i have enable option confirm on. I have also tried with option batch off, or batch abort but there is no confirmation again.
The only confirmation i can produce is when a partially uploaded file exists on the server.

Is there a bug with the option confirm on ? Can someone help me please ?
Thanks a lot

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email.
