Well, besides upgrading my WinSCP client, also my OS did change from XP to Win7, so I guess it is natural that the file locations do change also. But even after full hard drive search, I could not find any *.ini file related to WinSCP!
Luckily I was not the only person who tried to find the ini file, read related forum post from here (http://winscp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11264).
So the correct steps to enable your old ini file with saved sessions for WinSCP (in Windows 7) is following:
- Launch your WinSCP
- Select from the menu at left "Preferences" -> then from right hand side "Preferences" -> then "Storage" from lower left -> then select "INI file (WinSCP.ini)" -> "OK" -> "Close"
- The "WinSCP.ini" file was created to your "virtual folder", which can be found from "c:/Users/USERNAME/AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files (x86)/WinSCP"
- Manually copy and paste (with text editor) the wanted sessions from old to new ini file
Note 2: To make sure the new WinSCP works correctly, you need to copy&paste manually the sessions from the old Winscpxxx.ini to the new Winscp.ini
