Hi Tony,

Since no one has responded thus far, here goes.

I believe it is the system defined Temp folder (first found in this order):

  1. The path specified by the TMP environment variable.
  2. The path specified by the TEMP environment variable.
  3. The path specified by the USERPROFILE environment variable.
  4. The Windows directory.

So, when opening cmd.exe, set the TMP variable to a writable directory.

If the directory is 'full' or not write enabled, the archive will not expand, and no files will be tested by VSCL.

It is possible that VSE's OAS, if running, may scan the file and act on what is found, before or during VSCL scanning.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Ron Metzger
