    Testing commandline but EICAR.COM not working

    chrisp_68

      I am trying to test the Command Line for Windows Version 6.0.4 using the procedure form the manual.

      I have made a EICAR.COM as specified in the manual by copying and pasting the long specified string.

      The result is 79 bytes.

      I have checked there are no spaces or return chars

       

      When I use scan.exe to test the file it does not report any infections.

       

      Here is what I am doing on the command line.

       

                scan.exe /SECURE EICAR.COM

       

      Is there anything else I can check?

      Should I be using different parameters?

       

      Interestingly this file was picked up by my other virus scanner (ESET)
