FTP scripting from desktop to web host with wamp

Have a series of files on local windows server that I want to ftp to a web server host. the location of these files, source and target change on each use. the files are essentially the same wildcards (*.pdf, *.htm,  etc...) the transfer variables are the same (client,subclient,date) which dictate the location of the folders on both ends. I currently do this locally with a home grown filecopy program that is drivn from an xml file. Now moving to cloud hosting it must be ftp. I'm looking for an ftp package with scripting so that this is an automatic action. would love to find an ftp/xml solution but doubt that is in the cards. I'm going from a win10 desktop to a win 2012 server running wamp. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Most FTP apps can already help you script. But it sounds like you can already program yourself.
Therefore, the solution that probably best suits you would be a Visual Studio project (since that's free, the Community edition), along with the easy to use WnSCP component to do the heavy FTP lifting. That way you can program it to read a config file, and use those paramaters to copy/FTP files.

Look here for inspiration:

I'm guessing the transfer part is probably only 50 lines of code, and a few more for the config reading. So basically, it's still like scripting.
Because you have full control over it, you can have your own error handling routines (What ya think of Telegram-ing you alerts about errors?), and how to write your log files.
If you keep using other apps, usually you'll find a missing feature in one program, and another in the other, so you'll never be satisfied anyway.
