CLS v6.6.0.2 /f parameter fails for items with space in path

Recommended Posts

Product: Command Line Scanner version, obtained by online update of EEK version

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, SP1

Other Security: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012, Windows Firewall, KeyScrambler plugin for Firefox version

From the online documentation:

"/f=[path], /files=[path]

Scans a disk, a folder or a single file for malware infections. Folder paths with spaces have to be put in quotation marks."

But it seems that the /f parameter will not scan items with a space anywhere in the path, including the file name.

For example,


a2cmd /f="F:\nospace.jpg"

scans the file

a2cmd /f="F:\spa ce.jpg"

does not execute


a2cmd /f="F:\nospace\"

scans all contained files

a2cmd /f="F:\spa ce\"

does not execute

In an earlier topic (here), Sergey Kazitsin indicated that parameters parsing would be improved to handle paths with commas. Paths with commas are now accepted but it seems paths with spaces are not allowed.

Is this a bug? I hope it's not desired or expected behaviour.

Thank you for your attention.
