Topic "can't minimize window in Windows Vista"

Author Message



I can't minimize the WinSCP window in Windows Vista. This is while I'm connected to a remote computer. It only occurs after I save a file. So the steps to this problem are this:

1. Open WinSCP.
2. Connect to remote directory.
3. Right click file in remote directory and click Edit.
4. Edit file, and save it (in my own text editor -- Notepad++ which I have set to be default in WinSCP).
5. Then, WinSCP will prompt me for my password again for the remote computer (it only does this first time I want to save, and then at random saves after that (i.e. not every time -- this is not a problem, I don't mind entering my password - and it's probably due to how the remote computer is set up)).
6. After I enter my password, the remote directory refreshes.
7. I click on the minimize button at the top of the window, the window 'wiggles' a bit, but doesn't minimize.

A couple notes:
(i) if I never save during a session, then the window will minimize just fine
(ii) I do NOT have the "minimize to tray" preference set.

I have the latest version of WinSCP. I really like your program. Thanks for all your work. I hope you can fix this problem.


I forgot to add that I am using SFTP-3 server protocol when connecting. I am using WinSCP 4.1.9, and I'm pretty sure I could minimize in the version previous to this one. I am using the GUI in Explorer format.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.
