Great thanks Lucas for your help. – shekhar8282 Mar 23 '12 at 7:27
FWIW, I am currently logged on to a Win2008 R2 server, which has WinSCP version 4.3.2 installed. It works fine, never had any issues with it. As Lucas said, it's probably best to get the latest stable release. – Adam Thompson Mar 23 '12 at 11:30
