To run the Critical Areas Scan task and save a task log named scancritical.log in the current folder, execute the following command:

You can use the /W parameter to configure the location of the task log (see the table below).
Syntax of the
/W parameter for the
KAVSHELL SCANCRITICAL command
/W:<path to task log file>
If this parameter is specified, Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows will save the task log file using the name specified by the parameter value.
The log file contains task execution statistics, the time when the task was started and completed (stopped), and information about events that occurred during the task.
The log is used to register events defined by the task log settings and the Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows event log settings in Event Viewer.
You can specify either the absolute or relative path to the log file. If you specify only a filename without a path, the log file will be created in the current folder.
Restarting the command with the same log settings will overwrite the existing log file.
The log file can be viewed while a task is running.
The log appears in the Task logs node of the Application Console.
If Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows fails to create the log file, it will display an error message but will still execute the command.
