bartpe mcafee command line scanner error 4294967295
so, i ran into problems getting mcafee command line scanner working in my bartPE builds a while back. i recently installed a clean bartpe environment and started over from scratch. i noticed immediately that problems i was having with spybotSD went away, but mcafee was still broken somehow.

poking around the interwebs i found this:


"On April 1, 2010, scan.exe in the daily SuperDAT was replaced with a small stub file of the same name.

With the End Of Life for the V1 DATs on March 31, 2010, the Command Line Scanner (scan.exe) has been removed from the daily SuperDAT packages (sdatxxxx.exe and xdatxxxx.exe). For compatibility reasons, a stub file named scan.exe will remain in the SuperDAT packages. However, this is is not an actual executable file."

this matched up with the time that things started breaking for me.

the fix is to take the files scan.exe, scan.dat, license.dat, messages.dat, names.dat, mcscan32.dll from an older working version of the command line scanner and drop them into your new folder.

putting this here in the hopes that someone else doesn't have to slog through a bunch of people's "are you sure you're doing it right?" responses.

Where can I find and download these old files?

in my opinion, this is just another way that mcafee ensures that there are viruses and worms running around out there in the wild. i have never trusted them as a company. i would not be surprised if it were found out that they were "indirectly" paying people to write new viruses and release them.

i think everybody should

BAN McAfee
