2008-07-16 08:47 Comment The reason is that WinSCP considers remote path with syntax like /xxx/xxx as an unknown switch, not as parameter.

Until 4.0.x WinSCP considered only /xxx parameters (one slash followed by letters) as switches, so it was possible at least to use paths with two slashes like /xxx/xxx. WinSCP 4.1.x considers any parameter starting with slash as a switch.

We should revert to 4.0.x behaviour.

However 4.1.x allows you to use switch // to denote that all following parameters are not switches. Hence command like below can be used as workaround:
winscp41x.exe /synchronize c:\localpath // /remotepath

Resolution FIXED
Comment Fixed (reverted to pre-4.1.x behavior).
