Command line update question?

Recommended Posts

After reading the MBAM Help file for the first time, I've noticed that there are two command line parameters that seem to be very useful, /quickscan and /runupdate. My question is:

Is it against the Malwarebytes EULA if I added mbam.exe /quickscan and/or mbam.exe /runupdate in the Windows Task Scheduler if I use the freeware version?

Seeing as those features are part of the paid version I see where you might raise that question, however I'm certain the developers were aware of that possibility when they added those command line parameters (particularly runupdate as it was added in ver 1.34), so I don't see how it could be a violation. If they didn't want it to be possible they'd remove the option, at least that's how I see it. MBAM's EULA is pretty clear
