Not needed. All information could be in the file name.

That's strange, yes. But if you set the method in the file name, it
shouldn't matter what's the default.

Well, personally I don't use MS Windows. But there are people using
Tramp on this, so it shall be possible :-)

First try to use a full remote path name, as proposed already. Since you
are using PuTTY, the path name might be
"/plink:address@hidden:myextract.txt"

What happens, if you open a file like this (without the double quotes,
of course)?
