When clamwin.exe downloads updated signatures, it creates on the fly "%temp%\tmp(randomID)", which is actually freshclam.conf for freshclam.exe

I'd like to modify that default freshclam.conf. How do I do that? Where are the default settings taken from?

the only fields we create are the proxy settings and the db mirror. These are configured in clamwin settings

Well, I want to add "ScriptedUpdates no" for the default temp freshclam.conf.

hm, that would have to be done in the source code. I can add a parameter in clamwin.conf for the next version

Hi, can you also send me the custom .conf?
Also, i can't find the freshclam.conf file.


Thank you.

Have you read the original post?

By custom build, alch meant the EXE file. But all I ask for is one more parameter (especially since I use the portable version which may have/will have its own custom EXE for all I know). I think this one more parameter would be useful for many users. And as long as it's not used by default, it shouldn't be a problem.

v0.96.1 is out and supports this parameter (not in the GUI though, but at least in the conf file) ! Thanks! Very Happy
