I'm running a background script and I get the following prompt in the log file. Is there a switch or parameter that I can use to override this?

If I run my batch file in the foreground, it doesn't stop and ask me this question.

WinsCP 4.2.9 (build 938)

MS Windows 2008 Server (64-bit)

{script}
\"program files (x86)"\winscp\winscp.com /command "open profile" "cd DPH_DERSS_Bioref_test" "option confirm off" "put *.*" "exit" /log="\sftp\de\log.txt"

{log}
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325 The server's dss key fingerprint is:
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325 ssh-dss 1024 {removed for post}
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325 If you trust this host, press Yes. To connect without adding host key to the cache, press No. To abandon the connection press Cancel.
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325
. 2011-04-14 18:42:44.325 Continue connecting and add host key to the cache? ()

Thanks,
Mike

The documentation states:
winscp.com /command "open ""My session"" -hostkey=""ssh-rsa 1024 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"""


I tried:
C:\"program files (x86)"\winscp\winscp.com /command "open ""profile"" -hostkey=""ssh-dss 1024 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx""" "cd DPH_DERSS_Bioref_test" "option confirm off" "put *.*" "exit" /log="c:\sftp\de\log.txt"

Yes, I do have my password saved into the GUI profile if that's what you mean. I open the GUI and edit it and it is there and I can login without having to enter it.

Anything else?

Thanks,
Mike

I ran my batch file from a Windows command window and it runs perfectly and doesn't ask any questions. I then tried it from the background again and it hangs up on this "Password" question still.

Any way around this? I need to get this working.

Thanks,
Mike

OK, I got it to work. I had to login under our Windows service account and go through the login process and now my background process is working properly.

Thanks for your help.
