mcodsscan.exe --filescan


I'm having an issue with running mcodsscan.exe from command line.

When I run C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\mcodsscan.exe --filescan C:\Testing\file_to_scan.exe it works ok, but also opens a GUI and starts quick scan too.

Why does this happens and how to stop it? I just want to scan single file from command line, nothing else.

I have McAfee AntiVirus (SecurityCenter 14.0 / Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware 18.0)
