How to update the Command Line V6 DAT-Files

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have downloaded the Command Line Virusscanner V6. The file AVVSCAN.DAT is from 2010/05/27. Where can I get the actual DAT files for the Command Line Virusscanner (Windows).

Thnaks and Regards

Janni

You could use the file from here: http://www.mcafee.com/apps/downloads/security_updates/dat.asp?region=us&segment=enterprise and execute it as xxxxxdat.exe /e <directory of your McAfee installation>

Are you looking to script an update? Ad hoc update? What sort of update are you actually looking for???

after you extract sdatxxx.exe to folder. you do not replace SCAN.exe as it is stub file.  I do copy only *.dat

***reference

  • Only the actual DAT files are required.
  • The version of scan.exe that is include in the SuperDAT is a stub file only and cannot be used.
    See KB68671 - Scan.exe in Daily SuperDAT (sdatxxxx.exe and xdatxxxx.exe) has been replaced with stub file of the same name.
