Update without launching application.

Recommended Posts

how can I edit my original post ?

you might ask why I want to update without launching mbam, it's because I use it to scan individual downloaded files, so atm I launch mbam, update, exit application then scan files using context menu.

it will be much easier to update the signature using Updater.exe or any other method.

anyone ?

To answer your other question, if you are using the free version, the only way to update MBAM through the application is to launch it and manually update. However, you can create a shortcut to "mbam.exe" on your desktop with the command line switch "/runupdate" or "/updateshowdialog" to update MBAM. Or you can set up a task in Task scheduler to update MBAM however often you'd like. It's not that difficult and you could use those switches I mentioned earlier (/updateshowdialog or /runupdate)

More information on the command line switches can be found here
