I have installed ClamWin 0.97.3 on my private XP computer and because I prefer to have configuration and log files in a directory underneath the ClamWin directory itself, I changed the location of ClamWin.conf and edited it as follows:

Code:
[ClamAV]
[...]
logfile = X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\log\ClamScanLog.txt
freshclam = X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\freshclam.exe
clamscan = X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\clamscan.exe
quarantinedir = X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\quarantine
database = X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\db
[...]

[Updates]
[...]
dbupdatelogfile = X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\log\ClamUpdateLog.txt
[...]

Now to my questions/problems:
1. Is it correct that ClamWin does not accept relative paths for e.g. "database" in ClamWin.conf ? - Why not ?
2. When I update ClamWin by the following command line
Code:
X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\freshclam.exe --verbose --datadir="X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\db" --config-file="X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\FreshClam.conf"


at the end I always get the folowing error message:
[...]
bytecode.cld updated (version: 167, sigs: 40, f-level: 63, builder: edwin)
Database updated (1137863 signatures) from db.de.clamav.net (IP: 46.4.205.40)
ERROR: Missing argument for option at line 1
ERROR: SubmitDetectionStats: Can't find or parse configuration file X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\ClamWin.conf

My FreshClam.conf file is located in X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\FreshClam.conf .

Nevertheless it seems everything went fine. I can't find out where this error message derives from. Can someone give me a hint?

Thank you

your X:\avirus\ClamWin\Data\FreshClam.conf is most likely incorrect as the error message says:
Can't find or parse configuration file X:\avirus\ClamWin\bin\ClamWin.conf
