Command Line?

Recommended Posts

Yes, you'll find it in the Emsisoft Anti-Malware folder:

Note that you'll need to execute it from an elevated (running as Administrator) Command Prompt, and you can see the documentation by executing the following command:

a2cmd.exe /s /?

Important: The version of a2cmd.exe that is bundled with Emsisoft Anti-Malware requires that you use the /S parameter when you run it. This is due to the fact that Emsisoft Anti-Malware uses a service, and a2cmd.exe needs to be told to communicate with that service to perform its functions. The only time the /S parameter can be omitted is when the Emsisoft Protection Service is not running.

There is also online documentation at the following link, however this is for the standalone version of a2cmd.exe which does not require the /S parameter, so some information may vary from the documentation that a2cmd.exe will output when you run it:

If you would like to have a copy of the a2cmd.exe documentation in a Text File that you can reference at any time, then simply hold down the Windows logo key on your keyboard and tap the R key to open the Run dialog, paste the following command into the Run dialog, and then click OK:

PowerShell.exe -Command Start-Process -FilePath "%SystemDrive%\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" -ArgumentList @('/C','\"\"%SystemDrive%\Program Files\Emsisoft Anti-Malware\a2cmd.exe\" /s /?>\"%UserProfile%\Desktop\A2CMD_Documentation.txt\"\"') -Verb RunAs

This will launch PowerShell with a command to launch an elevated Command Prompt and run a2cmd.exe with the command to display the help information, and redirect the output to a Text File on your Desktop. When Windows asks if you want to allow the Windows Command Processor to make changes to your computer, then you will have to click "Yes", or the command won't work.
