alch,

I have the same problem, have read that section two-three times, have read the on-line help message also, and still do not know what is wrong.
That error message is somewhat wrong... Is there a /usr/local/share/clamav on win32?!

Please help,
Adrian.

P.S. When scanning through explorer's context menu then the program works fine.

quote form the manual:

The database directory must be specified, using the --database=FILE/DIR parameter.


The database location can be seen in clamwin preferences file locations.
