I downloaded and saved the pscp.exe at C:\MyTest

In my bat file i make a call to it as

C:\MyTest\pscp.exe -v -i C:\MyTest\eg.txt etc...

However, I get the following message which says
C:\MyTest\pscp.exe is not recognised as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.

You can not provide the full drive name, instead do this in your batch file:

c:
cd \MyTest
pscp.exe -v -i C:\MyTest\eg.txt

To make it look better add @echo off at the beginning, this way it will not output anything tot he console

Make sure that pscp.exe exists in the C:\MyTest directory:

dir c:\mytest\pscp.exe

Good Luck,
Steve
