Topic "weird warning about translation when starting WinSCP"

Author Message


I'm using the latest WinSCP (4.2.7) on Japanese Windows 7 64bit.

Starting application always display the warning dialog like follows:

[quote]File 'C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.JP' contains translation for WinSCP version 4.2.3. Please remove the file. Otherwise the application will not work correctly.[quote]

I'm sure there is no such file in 'C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP'.

Reinstalling WinSCP didn't help.

I tried installing the latest Japanese translation file from, but it also didn't help.

What should I check?

Pressing OK on the warning dialog and I can use in English mode, but I have to press OK button every time starting WinSCP... ;-(

What if you navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP" from within WinSCP, would you see the file?

Thanks, I could see the file '' in the WinSCP panel.

(I don't know why it didn't appear in Explorer...)

Deleting that file by WinSCP and now it is working without any problems.
