How can I convert my Windows scripts to WinSCP scripts

Hi folks,

I am brand new to WinSCP. I need to send multiple files to a remote site in a secure ftp. Here are what my current scripts look like:

RUN.BAT
@echo off 
REM ------------------------------------------ 
REM This batch file will run an ftp upload 
REM then delete files on the current computer. 
REM ------------------------------------------ 
REM Start the upload 
echo ---------------------------------- 
echo Start uploading at %TIME% 
echo ---------------------------------- 
ftp -s:putfile.txt XXX.XX.XXX.XXX //runs the text file below 
REM Done uploading, now delete the files on the local machine 
echo ---------------------------------- 
echo Deleting local files 
echo ---------------------------------- 
del D:\FTP_FOLDER\III to DOR\hello*.txt // deletes the files on my side after the ftp 
REM copy over the files on the root to replace the one's just deleted 
echo ---------------------------------- 
copy D:\helloworld*.txt 
echo ---------------------------------- 
echo Upload complete at %TIME%. 
echo ----------------------------------
Kicks off this file:
PUTFILE.TXT
jdoe // user name 
jdoe // password 
prompt 
cd uploads 
mput helloworld*.txt /files to be trasferred 
bye
Thanks!

Re: How can I convert my windows scripts to winSCP scripts

First, you should read:

But, anyway:
RUN.BAT
...
echo ---------------------------------- 
echo Start uploading at %TIME% 
echo ---------------------------------- 
winscp.com /script=putfile.txt
REM Done uploading, now delete the files on the local machine 
...
PUTFILE.TXT
option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp://jdoe:jdoe@XXX.XX.XXX.XXX
cd uploads 
put helloworld*.txt
exit

Re: How can I convert my windows scripts to winSCP scripts

Hi Prikryl

When I ran the code you gave me I got a "winSCP is not a valid win32 application".

I also got a "access denied"

Is there a certain location I need to run the batch files from?
Right now the files are 4 layers down. Does it have to be run with the path ie c:\program files\WinSCP script?

Can you give me a step by step process of how I need to do this.
Is a session necessary to do this like it is within the application?

To run the run.bat before I just typed bat. Is that what I do here?

As these probable are not WinSCP specific, you should better ask someone who can see the problem on your screen. This way we could hardly solve anything. I'm sorry.

I also got the same error after running that code. Now WinSCP.com doesn't seem to work. I would like to reinstall but I'm afraid it may lose my saved connections if I do so?
