Help with Virus Scan & Download Accelerator Plus

Jump to solution

I need help with the syntax for the command line. In DAP (Download Accelerator Plus) you can put in the executable file with the proper parameters and it will automatically scan the files it downloads. I cannot figure out the syntax for -fd, if that's the correct switch. Please help. Thank you in advance,

Markdoc

Following is the syntax for a 32-bit Operating System "C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan>mcodsscan -fd C:\Users\Selvan\Documents"

Here the Command Scanner scans for files that are located in the path "C:\Users\Selvan\Documents"

Please use the location of output folder for DAP so as to schedule a Command line Scan

Yes it did and thanks.  I think the -fd switch is the one to use but I can't figure out the syntax.  In the help file it says "-fd <value>.....<value>  scan specified files" I just can't figure out what the values are.

I wish I knew the answer but have never attempted it myself.   Hopefully someone will post soon.

I can't thank you enough Selvan, for your help. Also Ex_Brit for writing to you.  If you don't mind, I have one more question. Is there  way to use wildcards in order to scan a single file?

Just include path of the file along with file extension. That should work.

Thanks for jumping in here Selvan.  I'm afraid this sort of thing is lost on me.
