I'm running McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.0.0 Scan32.exe with command line parameters but I can't get logging to work.

The following parameters are available but how do I specify the log file/path?
The log settings in the VirusScan Console don't appear to be used either.

LOG - Log infection reports to previously specified log file.
LOGFORMAT <value> - Use the specified format for the log file. Valid values are ANSI,UTF8, or UTF16.
LOGSETTINGS - Log the configuration settings of a scan task.
LOGSUMMARY - Log a summary of scan task results.
LOGUSER - Log identifying information about the user who executes ascan task.

My current command looks like this:

scan32.exe C:\ PRIORITY=1 /ALLOLE /MOVE ^
/ALWAYSEXIT /AUTOEXIT /APPLYNVP /CONTINUE /CONTINUE2 ^
/CONTINUEA /CONTINUEA2 /LOGSUMMARY /LOG ^
/NOESTIMATE /START

I don't have McAfee but I think it is just /LOGFILE <filename>

e.g.

/LOG=C:\VirusScanLog.txt

At least worth a try.

You're right. The manual only implied the filename parameter.
Thanks!
