Sorry, but that's not true: TSVN 1.5 does *not* contain the DOS/console
version of plink. It's still the patched version (called TortoisePlink)
which prevents showing the annoying DOS window.

Since TortoisePlink is based on Putty 0.60 instead of Putty 0.5x as in
TSVN 1.4.8, you might have to recrate your session keys to make this work.

Otherwise, have a look here:

As for providing both versions: why?
We provide TortoisePlink because that's the original plink with some
patches from us to prevent the DOS window from popping up for every
connection. If you need the console version however, just download putty
from the original place.
