Error:

The Messaging Engine failed to add a receive location “FileSync.SFTP” with URL “sftp://raclede.net/files/*.*” to the adapter “SFTP”. Reason: “System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly ‘WinSCPnet, Version=1.5.4.8265, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=2271ec4a3c56d0bf’ or one of its dependencies. General Exception (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131500)

How to solve:

  1. Copy the both WinSCP exe and dll (5.13.1) to BizTalk Installation Path (Do not GAC the dll)
    1. WinSCP.exe
    2. WinSCPnet.dll

How to get the exe and dll

  1. Use Nuget in Visual Studio to get the specific version of WinSCP.

Nuget-WinSCP    2.  Once added, just browse to the lib for the dll and tools folder for the .exe

Nuget-WinSCP-InstallPath
