    I’m getting “Panda Commandline Secure was closed. To help protect your computer, Data Execution Prevention has closed Panda Commandline Secure” when running Pavcl.exe c:kits -lis on Vista.

    @Dante Make sure to run the command line prompt as administrator. You might also check the properties of pavcl.exe to run in compatibility mode.

    Has the Linux version completely died. I know this post is from a long time ago. It seems like I’m unable to get an updated Linux version although the Panda Command Line for Linux page is still active.

      Hello Dax. Panda Antivirus for Linux does not exist. Panda Command Line for Linux is still alive for customers who bought the product. Thanks
