Yes. I copied the cmd from my Windows 7 machine to the Windows 2008 x64 server.

The cmd is from the url: http://download1.emsisoft.com/a2cmd.zip.

I tested too the one that is inside EmsisoftEmergencyKit.zip, and the same issue.

I already ran the test in Windows 2008 in a local folder an the same result.

I tested the cmd in windows 2003 R2 too, but in these version the cmd crash. This is the output:

Emsisoft Commandline Scanner v.

© 2003-2011 Emsi Software GmbH - www.emsisoft.com

Program error: The required file engine.dll can not be found.

Please go to www.emsisoft.com and download the latest software package.

Program error: The required file a2update.dll can not be found.

Please go to www.emsisoft.com and download the latest software package.

The cmd is the same in all sides.

Thanks.

Can you tell me the actual command line you use? In addition: Does a "notepad \\PILOT\SAMPLE\EICAR.TXT" executed on the Windows 2008 command line bring up Notepad displaying the content of the file?

You haven't answered my question yet. Please can you tell me the exact command line you use to invoke the Emsisoft command line scanner and can you please check that Notepad is actually able to read the file when you try to invoke it from the Windows 2008 command line using the following command: "notepad \\PILOT\SAMPLE\EICAR.TXT"? Thanks.

Sorry, i didn't understand the questions.

a2cmd.exe /h /r /a /logansi=scan.log Eicar.txt. The same in both windows.

And yes, i can execute from cmd "notepad \\PILOT\SAMPLE\EICAR.TXT" and the file open.

Thanks.

So you are invoking the command from the shared folder? Can you please try to invoke the command from the Emsisoft Command Line scanner folder and use something like this?

a2cmd.exe /h /r /a /logansi=scan.log \\PILOT\SAMPLE\Eicar.txt

No, i run the a2cmd from the Emsisoft Command Line scanner folder, not from the shared path.

I already scanned the file in a local path in Windows 2008 x64 and is the same result. It doesn't have to do with the shared folder.

Please, can you run the cmd in a Windows 2008 and check if the problem is repeated in your enviroment?

Thanks.

I just tested it on Windows 2008 R2 and didn't experience any issues. Would it be possible to get remote access to the machine with the problem to see what exactly is going wrong?

Is not possible give you access to my server, it's not in my hands.

I didn't tested the cmd in 2008 R2, only in 2008 x64 where is the problem.

Where did you get the cmd? Is there any other url or other version that i can download from your site?

Thanks.

Sorry, but without some kind of access to the machine showing the problem there is nothing I can do for you at this point.

I used the command line package (a2cmd.zip) from our homepage.

I'm using the same cmd.

It could be an issue with the license??

What i red is that the command line is free of use for private and i dont know if exist eny restriction to us it in server environment.

I need to purchase a license to get this working??

Is working now.

I don't know what was hapening. I downloaded it again and everything is fine. :-)

It's seems that the cmd from the Emergency Kit was the one with the problem.

Thanks for your time.
