PA Avast! Antivirus Support



  • Hi,

    Can you add to the Optional Virus Scanner List Avast! Antivirus.

    I have included the default directory and the .exe file for quick scans.

    Directory
    C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4

    .exe Scan Launcher
    ashQuick.exe

    C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe

    I have to set this everytime i install a new version and although it isnt hard it would be nice for PA to automatically do this for me.

    Hi,

    To do this on avast, does PowerArchiver require any other switches on the .exe you point to?

    Thanks, Andrew Robinson.

    No switches are required. Just select ashQuick.exe as the Optional Virus scanner and thats you done. πŸ™‚

    … I have to set this everytime i install a new version and although it isnt hard it would be nice for PA to automatically do this for me.

    Are you saying that when upgrading PA, this configuration is lost? I don’t think that should happen (within PA 10.x.x releases anyway). Not sure if it would be kept going from PA 9 to PA 10 πŸ˜•



  • Working on any upgrade of PA i allways lost my settings for Avast Antivirus, thats why I wanted it installed as default.

    Then Again, I upgrade and downgrade allot for Testing purposes so I guess that doesnt help. πŸ˜ƒ
