    Hi,

    Is there any way to define Multiple addresses (directories) for virus-scanning using ECLS.exe in one session?

    for example:
    ecls.exe /auto C:\folder1 | C:\folder2 | C:\folder3

    Regards

    What about the following syntax?
    ecls.exe /auto C:\folder1 C:\folder2 C:\folder3

    I found something interesting!
    I'm using a batch file like below for using ECLS.exe:

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Smart Security\ecls.exe" ^
    /subdir ^
    /aind ^
    "C:\folder1" "C:\folder2"
    when I use above code, folder1 and folder2 will be scanned
    But when I change the last line to ( used batch breaking line symbol '^' ):
    Code:
    "C:\folder1" ^
    "C:\folder2"
    then only folder1 will be scanned and folder2 will not be recognized by ecls.exe according to below error (which is at the end of log file):
    Code:
    [I]'"C:\folder2"' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file[/I]
    What could be the reason?!

    Don't use quotes or try a extra quote before the first folder given (and a extra one at the end to close it).

    /edit:
    Well only way it seems to work is not to use quotes between the folder names. Gotta be in one line for that to work
