ssh connection / download : cannot save to workflow embedded path

Hi Guys,

me again on the ssh connection topic :smiley:

this time, i have a strange experience in downloading a file to


a fully qualified path works

but not the workflow embedded path; ERROR Download 2:227 Execute failed: Illegal char <:> at index 86: C:/Users/HVereyck/Downloads/_binaries/knime_4.0.0.win32.win32.x86_64/knime_4.0.0/knime:

any ideas on why this would be ?

Thx for the work around!
