Hi,

Sorry for my late reply, i was not in my office last week. I attached the requested log file. But now it works fine with the latest version ( 6.1.1 ). So it's ok for me.

However I have a new problem with this version... With this command:
F:\NetScan\netscan.exe /hide /config:F:\NetScan\BEETA\ScanBEETA.xml /auto:"F:\NetScan\BEETA\BEETA_Scan_date_%dd%-%mm%-%yyyy%_time_%hh%-%nn%.htm"
I got this result:
BEETA_Scan_date__time_.htm

The date and time do not appear. Maybe you know why?

Thanks for your help Andrew!

Probably your script scheduler thinks those are environment variables and strips them out. Perhaps extra escaping can help:
"F:\BEETA_Scan_date_^%dd^%-^%mm^%-^%yyyy^%_time_^%hh^%-^%nn^%.htm"
or
^"F:\BEETA_Scan_date_^%dd^%-^%mm^%-^%yyyy^%_time_^%hh^%-^%nn^%.htm^"

Same problem with extra escaping in the .bat script but it works great without extra escaping in .sp1 powershell script.

Finally it's perfect! Thank you very much for your help Andrew!
