New DropTarget App Idea for ClamWin

I just got wraithdu's EraserDropTarget, and it lead me to the idea for a drop target for ClamWin.

Anyone want to make that work? I picture a target you drop a file on, it sends to Clamwin, if no virus is found it closes Clamwin, if one is found it waits for Clamwin to deal with it then closes Clamwin. Would that be possible?

Hm...

I think you just have to replace some code in the script.
I'm not sure, but probably so.

Insert original signature here with Greasemonkey Script.

sounds good..

but is there a need for it? Those using Convey just put a link to clamscan.exe into Convey´s "send to" folder and replace the target in lnk properties by

X:\PortableApps\ClamWinPortable\App\clamwin\bin\clamscan.exe -d "..\..\..\Data\db" -r --bell 

then you can "rightclick send to" every file to be checked by clamwin

I Like It

I like the initial idea. Convey became pretty buggy with the addons in the last release as awesome as it was.

don't know about your

don't know about your computer, but mine still takes a few seconds to open the SendTo menu. Also does bypassing the launcher like that not leave anything on the host?

xp sp2 restricted account

takes part of a second for rightclick send to.
registry search is limited here, with search for clamscan/clamwin there´s only the mui cache entry, i´m not able to do a regshot for now, so that´s debatable.
buggy convey refers for most part to some of the addons, I found Quicklaunch and Clipboard addon working smoothly, the others though: ugh...
once again, the OP idea is intriguing, since this is standard in almost every AV scanner, perhaps as a context menu entry, forcing clamwin portable to scan...

Edit: XP SP3 admin account ditto

EDT could be modded pretty

EDT could be modded pretty easily for this purpose. All the code is there, just drop in your own target icon, change the code for what to do when a file is dropped, and mod/add/remove the context menus.

Anyone know if Clamwin queue's up files to be scanned, or will issuing multiple commands start multiple instances of Clamwin?

I ask becuase SendTo sends every file selected as one commandline argument, while the context menu entries send each file as a new separate command. There are pros/cons to each, but the biggest is that selecting too many files with SendTo or having a path that is too long will quickly use up the path length limit for the commandline, 256 characters I think?

EDT operates like the context menu, each file is sent as a new command (which is why so many instances of eraserl are spawned if you drop a lot of files).
