Command Line Scanner elevated privileges


Recommended Posts

Do I have to start a2cmd as an administrator (according to https://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/cmd/) or does it work even without evelated privileges? I only want to scan external drives to make sure, they are not infected.

Its driver can't be loaded without administrator rights, however if you're using the standalone version (as opposed to the version bundled with Emsisoft Emergency Kit) then it should be possible to install the service with the /s parameter from an elevated Command Prompt, and then run it from a Command Prompt without admin rights as the service would handle everything in the background. Please note however that I haven't tested this recently, and functionality with regards to admin rights may have changed.
