in reply to (OT) Copying files from Window to Linux box

You are getting a password prompt. That means that scp is installed locally and the Linux system is responding.

The error here is that your Windows system says that the file you're trying to copy is not found.

It could also be a permissions issue. Check that the user you're using scp with can actually open the document.
