To update your McAfee antivirus engine and/or signature files with shell scripting, proceed as follows:

  1. Create a new directory to store all files included in this example.
  2. Select Start|Run and enter “scriptfile.bat.”

Here, scriptfile is the full path and file name of a script file that contains the following:

@Echo Off

CLS

Set SDAT=”superdat

Set DAT=”datfile

Set NAILOG=”textlog

Set DDAY=”DOTW

For /F “Tokens=1” %%I in (‘Date /T’) Do Set Day=%%I

If %DAY% EQU %DDAY% Goto UENGINE

%DAT% /F /PROMPT /REBOOT /SILENT /LOGFILE

%NAILOG%

GOTO END

:UENGINE

%SDAT% /F /PROMPT /REBOOT /SILENT /LOGFILE %NAILOG%

GOTO END

:END

Set SDAT=

Set DAT=

Set NAILOG=

Set DAY=

Here, SDAT is a variable containing the complete path and file name of the SuperDAT executable; DAT is a variable containing the complete path and file name of the DAT executable; NAILOG is a variable containing the complete path and file name of the status log text file; and DDAY is the day of the week (Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat, Sun) to run the SuperDAT as opposed to the daily DAT file.
