V2008 conflict with WinSCP

Postby OldNerdGuy » Thu Jun 05, 2008 2:34 pm

You changed the naming convention for temp files in ...\Local Settings\Temp. Version 2008.1 is using a directory name starting with scp$ while 3.5 used a name starting with la$

WinSCP stores temporary files in the TEMP folder in directories beginning with scp (no $). So if 2008.1 is running, and WinSCP starts, it tries to clean up old folders starting with scp. Oops, not their folder. But does warn you about it.

Why the change from la$ to scp$? This is an annoyance that will keep me using 3.5 over 2008.1 as I use WinSCP extensively.

It's quite a nasty issue, but it seems to be a WinSCP bug.

Anyway, we'll chnage the name of temporary folders in the first update of 2008.1.
