Why can I not get WINSCP to run with a script?

If this was my script, what command to I type to run it, I hace C:\program files\winSCP in my path and I type WinSCP filename to run it, but I get

D:\EARS_Extracts\ICR\Out>winSCP.com example.txt
Cannot start WinSCP application.

I have the IP and user names change to mine
WHY Can it NOT start WinSCP application? Is there a certain place the file is to be run from?

Do you have WinSCP.exe in the PATH? What happens if you type WinSCP.exe instead of WinSCP.com?

And btw, it is
WinSCP.com /script=example.txt
But that's not a cause of your problem.

You said "But that's not a cause of your problem"
Why do you think so?
Just to simplify things, can you give me a short script of what I need to put one file to the remote server?
AND the command line to run it?


Thank you!

There's nothing wrong about your script.

Can answer:
Do you have WinSCP.exe in the PATH? What happens if you type WinSCP.exe instead of WinSCP.com?
