MTPuTTY can wait during script execution. Insert internal MTPuTTY command into the script:
###_SLEEP:XXXXX
where XXXX is a wait period in millisecond.

Select Server->Connect to from the main menu.

How can I popup PuTTY system menu?

Click right mouse button on the session tab or click WinMenu button when PuTTY session is focused.
Not all the command will be available in MTPuTTY and MTPuTTY adds some command to this menu.

When I use "Duplicate session" command from PuTTY system menu, a new session is created as a separate window. Can I attach it to MTPuTTY automatically?

You should use View->Duplicate (or select Duplicate from MTPuTTY system menu). In this case new session will inherit credentials and script from the source session.

Does the program save the configuration in the system registry?

No, it saves the configuration in mtputty.xml file and other XML files.

Where mtputty.xml resides?

Where mtputty.xml resides?The default location is %User Profile%\Application Data\TTYPlus\mtputty.xml
If MTPuTTY runs in portable mode, mtputty.xml should be located in the program folder.

How can I run mtputty.exe from a flash drive?

Copy ptputty.exe to this drive and run it with /P parameter to create configuration file in the same folder. You can run it with /P parameter only once.
On next start if MTPuTTY finds mtputty.xml in its folder, it will use it. If you want to use your original mtputty.xml, just copy it to the flash drive (you don't need to run MTPuTTY with /P parameter in this case).

Is MTPuTTY free?

Yes, it is free for both home and enterprise users.

Can you open the source codes?
No. Although it is freeware, it is not open source product.
