WinSCP Portable 4.0.3 Pre-Release 2 (Testers Needed)

Final version released. Topic locked.
https://portableapps.com/news/2007-08-14_-_winscp_portable_4.0.3

I've just posted a test release of WinSCP Portable 4.0.3. WinSCP is an SFTP, FTP and SCP client. The portable version is bundled with a launcher to handle your settings files as you move between PCs.

WinSCP Portable will also automatically work with PuTTY Portable. You just need to start PuTTY Portable independently before you click the PuTTY button within WinSCP.

Download WinSCP Portable 4.0.3 Pre-Release 2
(may take a few minutes to hit the download servers)

Please give it a try and post your feedback.

Thanks,
John

UPDATE (August 6) Pre-Release 2: The launcher has been updated to use the WinSCP command line rather than moving the INI file back and forth. Thus, the launcher doesn't have to wait around for WinSCP to finish anymore.

Cool.

Sounds like a complex launcher to me, I'll try it out.

2 Launchers

There are 2 launchers in it. One for WinSCP and one for PuTTY Portable (which the WinSCP launcher automatically configures WinSCP to use when you click the PuTTY button). That's how I was able to get all the integration working without configuration or anything on the user's part.

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

Is that a...

Home-made logo in the splash? Using other icons?

It looks good.

P.S. I can't understand the difference between ` and " .

I THINK ` is when the directories are relative to each other.

Eg:

Rename `$EXEDIR\Data\DefaultData` `$EXEDIR\Data`

Is this (partially) right?

Wrong

All three quotes: ` ' and " are equivalent. The only difference is that in a ` string you can use ' and " without escaping them, in a ' string you can use ` and " wo/escaping, and in " strings you can use ` and '.

It took a little bit of searching to track it down in the docs, since the actual section on the string variable type doesn't mention it. It's mentioned in Chapter 2 under Script Files:

"If you want to use a double-quote in a string you can either use $\" to escape the quote or quote the string with a different type of quote such as ` or '."

Signature automatically removed for being too awesome.

Okay.

I have noticed. " inside of ` and I understand much of that, I just didn't understand the point to use ` OR ", but thanks very much.

Well,

There are the outside brackets and then everything inside is (basically) verbatim sent to the program. You should use ` (called a backtick, BTW) on the outside, double quotes around the path and the parameters (if needed) and then single quotes within those if needed. (Well, for Exec and family anyway)

I should.

Probally start reading the NSIS manual. Smile

So like:

`"$APPDATA\Smuglue" copy "$EXEDIR\Data"

I don't even think that's a command, but is that the right syntax? And where would ' go if needed?

Something like:
`"$EXEDIR\Ryan's Documents\blah.exe" -p="$EXEDIR\blah's bloos"`

Works great!

I think it will be a great goal to have the lang-files in the final version as optional component like the gtk lang files in gimp.

Pre-Release 2

I've updated to pre-release 2 to use WinSCP's command line rather than moving the INI file back and forth. Now, the launcher doesn't have to stick around anymore.

The open putty session to

The open putty session to server in pr1 didn't work very well for me (it pulled up a fresh putty configure window) but in pr2 now it works perfectly!

Great work on this one.

WinSCP: very good!

I am using the latest 4.0.3 build (standalone) from my USB drive and it works fine!

Great application!
