Added a user defined scan of the C: drive only. Scanned using this drive.

  1. The listed applications to update does not include associated update links as did the previous version.

  2. Some of the listed applications are incorrectly listed as requiring updates. i.e. MS SysInternals Process Explorer (I have installed the latest from the website, it shows the previous version instead),


  1. Ran the scan the once. Then I added two folders as exclusions to the drive scan.
    Each time the scan was run, CVA stopped running (crashed). Unchecking the exclusions made no difference. Removing the exclusions allowed the scan to complete.

I did note however, the scans were much faster than the previous beta.

Did you update from the previous version i.e Does the About box says Database version as 1.215 or 1.220. coz I got the update information link for the updates available list of app. with database version 1.215.


[attachment deleted by admin]

The database version is 1.215, and I did a clean install (run as Admin).
No, I did not do an online update. I uninstalled the previous version first.

I guess, a snapshot of the CVA scan result would help the developers to analyze this… or mention the product(with version information) that is getting missed to show the update information.


Cancel the links issue, as I pulled down the window much further and located them.

Try enlarging the screen…


P.S: :slight_smile:

May be the CVA dump under it’s installation folder could help the developers to analyze this issue…


Hello Vicky,

Can’t find a dump file anywhere, where should that be and what’s the name ?

Kind Regards,

We can find it under the CVA installation folder(By default it’s “C:\Program Files\Comodo\Vulnerability Analyzer”) and the name of the file would be MiniDump.dmp


Nope it’s not there… Also not in my \virtualstore…

Ran it again, doesn’t matter if the excluded folder is related to a result just any random exclusion makes it crash.

I can reproduce it and work around it:
If i exclude a normal folder CVA crashes everytime on the same point namely here:
A piece of procmon information.

C:\Data\Source(3) CrashedMarshall\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive

If i exclude a normal folder AND C:\Data\Source(3) CrashedMarshall then CVA Does not crash.

I have copied the complete folder to an other system and on that one it does not crash which leads me to believe that it’s permission related (copied over USB stick loses NFTS permissions).

I’ll see if i can copy with behold of permissons and see if it crashes then also.

Bug reporting for version continues from here

It doesn’t detect an old, PORTABLE version of the Opera browser.

I also lost detection of an old version of Hypersnap, reverting back to the previous version .51 does not bring this detection back either, did something change in the database that could cause this ?

Vista, SP1, Enterprise, x32.

Hi Ronny,

Can you let me know the version of Hypersnap you are using?

Thanks Rahul

Hello Rahul,

I’m using HS 6.13.02, that was detected in previous versions as Update Available.
Also on but after the release of it was gone, going back to .51 did not solve this either so i guess there has been some changing on DB level.
