BD Free Command Line?

edited August 2023 in Utilities

I got Bitdefender Free on my device. There is a right-click option for scanning individual files.

I would like to know if this is possible to do through cmd. There are a lot of executables and no console like on endpoint.

Further: I discovered the issue by accident; sometimes I use FreeDownloadManager for larger files and there is an option to link your AV and automatically scan the files you dl, which I always do. Yet, I do not know how to set this up by command. There's the link to the executable and a parameter manipulation box with %path% resembling the path of the freshly downloaded file.

Does anyone know how to do this with Free, as I'd also quite like to do some batchfiles to regularly scan specified locations from a simple desktop shortcut.

    I have received an answer to the problem, just to let everyone, that you've stumbled upon this post, know.

    As it seems, there is no possibility to run Bitdefender Free through command line. This is what I got as an answer from the support team. If this feature will ever be implemented in BD Free, do not ask in this thread.
