    Does Prevx have any Command Line parameters? I'd like to perform unattended scans. I have been looking everywhere for any information and can't find anything. :(

    I notice these params are used to launch the gui:
    /prop SHOWGUINOW=Y

    So I assume it is possible to run a scan without the gui?

    Can someone post all of the parameters or lead me to where I can get this information?

    Thanks,
    Siginet

    Hello,
    We don't have any officially supported commandline parameters but you should be able to run:

    "c:\program files\prevx\prevx.exe" /prop STARTSCANNOW=Y

    to trigger a scan on demand. We will be adding additional commandline functionality in the future but if you're looking to automate tasks, you may want to look into our Prevx Enterprise console for managing large numbers of users. Or, if you're just looking to scan at a specific time, you can use the scan scheduler features within Prevx 3.0 itself to configure a time to start a scan every day.
