Silent/External Scan Parameters
« on: January 20, 2006, 07:14:32 PM »
Hi all..
If I am trying to configure an external program, say WinZip or WLM, to use Avast to scan incoming files, what do I enter in the parameters?

exefile.exe -silent
for example.....

I would like it to scan the file (invisibly if possible) then alert the user if a virus has been found, else do nothing.
Thanks!
-CG

C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe I'm not aware if there are any switches for silent operation.
