VirusScan Enterprise uses MCUPDATE.EXE to
perform update tasks.
The MCUPDATE syntax does not require any
specific order in its elements, except that you cannot separate a
property and its value. The syntax consists of:
File name — The name of the executable file:
Options — The option is preceded by a forward
slash (/) character and is not case-sensitive.
For example, MCUPDATE [/<type> [/TASK
The /TASK clause is optional. If
you use it however, you must also specify an update task ID (guid).
The task ID you select must be for an update or a rollback DATs
task. Do not select to scan ID. If you do not specify a task ID,
the default update task is used. Task IDs are located at:
The /OPTION clause is
not required. To perform a silent update task, use /QUIET.
/QUIET option is not supported for use
with the rollback DATs task. This example performs a silent update
task: MCUPDATE [/UPDATE]
