PuTTY: Short Session List

I'm new to PortablePuTTy, but a long-time user of native PuTTy.
I have 130+ Sessions in the registry (Windows XP).

I've exported the Sessions and appended to the putty.reg file
for PortablePuTTy, however when it is initially fired up,
only a small (variable number 1-20) of the session are visible
as 'Saved Sessions'.

Curiously if I start second/subsequent PortablePuTTy sessions
up a complete list is available.

Any suggestions ?

Known issue

Crops up with large lists. There's a fixed launcher posted here:

It's called PuTTYPortableNoPause2.exe

Try that and confirm it works for you. I'll repackage the app and release it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Works for Me

Takes a while to start (and no splash screen, not sure if that is expected),
but full session list every time.

Fabulous - Many Thanks.

Same here

Was having similar problems (short session list, or some host keys missing), the new launcher linked to is slower to open, but works more reliably.

form what i've seen, this

form what i've seen, this happens because regedit.exe hasn't finished loading the registry file with all sessions before putty starts.

if it's doable, a solution would be to wait for regedit to finish the task then launch putty, or reading all the session keys and writing them to the registry from the launcher itself (any registry key can be read as a ini file without any problem)

god speed,
