I need to be able to use a .known_hosts file or just disable checking, preferably the first option. I would be open to other ideas/software too, but hopefully someone can tell me how to do this with PSCP.EXE

I'm using windows to SCP to and from a linux box.

Can you accept simply importing a known hosts file into the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\SshHostKeys? The linked script does appear to permit this.
