A user reports: Is there any way you can modify pageant to allow the -c command only to run if the key passed on the command line loaded successfully? This is the behaviour implied by the manual: You can arrange for Pageant to start another program once it has initialised itself and loaded any keys specified on its command line. This program (perhaps a PuTTY, or a WinCVS making use of Plink, or whatever) will then be able to use the keys Pageant has loaded. You do this by specifying the -c option followed by the command, like this: C:\PuTTY\pageant.exe d:\main.ppk -c C:\PuTTY\putty.exe However it continues to run the -c command even if the key fails to load (say if I press "cancel" when asked for a passphrase or even if the key file does not exist).
