The next version of McAfee VirusScan USB (v2.0) will include the updated 5.1.00 scan engine and daily DAT updates.
This product is currently in development. An update will be posted to this forum section when the release is made publically available.
Hope this helps.
Hello Colin Delaney,
thank you for this information.
If you search a beta-tester for the next version of U3 McAfee VirusScan USB (v2.0), send the conditions to my email address.
Thanks in advance!
excuse me, my english is bad, but I hope you understand me.
In McAfee U3 (v1.0) can replace the scan-engine 4.3.20 with engine 4.4.00.
Step 1) for example; rename "AV_18.104.22.168.u3p" to "AV_22.214.171.124.zip"
Step 2) unzip it
Step 3) in the folder ...\Data\AV\ replace the SCAN.EXE (4320) with SCAN.EXE (4400)
Step 4) in the same folder in the file "engine_md5sum.txt" use for SCAN.EXE "md5sum"
Step 5) make again a zip-file with the folders Data, device, host and Manifest
(but true a zip not a renamed rar)
Step 6) uninstall the old U3-McAfee (v1.0)
Step 7) eject the U3 drive and reconnect it
Step 8) install the changed version McAfee U3
Though the program-windows show 4320, the engine 4.4.00 works correct now.
I believe scan.exe is a command line scanner.
The file you really want to replace is MCSCAN32.DLL, this is what is used by the GUI I believe.
I'm not sure what the proper md5sum check sum code for this would be.
But why would you want to use 4.4.00 when you could do the same thing with 5.1.00 ??

many thanks, I've forget it.
All replaced files are 26.10.2004 04:40
Engine 5100 no work in this way.
Not that I'm telling you to do it,
But why do you think 5.1.00 would not work?

I have no answer.
5.1.00 will work now! Unfortunately, cause was my bad work.
I find out, all this files ("LICENSE.DAT", "MCSCAN32.DLL",
"MESSAGES.DAT", "SCAN.EXE" and also "engine_md5sum.txt")
must have exact the same date. (take SpeedCommander)
The important date is 09.06.2006 05:00 (day.month.year).
Write in "engine_md5sum.txt":
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Best wishes from me
