Filenaming Conventions for VirusScan


Beginning with VirusScan Version 2.0.0, McAfee will be using a new method of
naming the .ZIP files which contain our programs. The filename will note the
antivirus products' stock-keeping unit (SKU), its release status, major
version number, and minor version number (if any).

The new method of naming .ZIP files for electronic distribution of our
software is as follows:

{3 char. name} + {1 char status} + {3 char. major ver} + {1 char. minor ver}

The following chart gives some examples of what these can be:

SKU ³ RELEASE STATUS ³ MAJOR VER # ³ MINOR VER #
ÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍØÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍØÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍØÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ
SCN=Scan (DOS)³ A = alpha test ³ 200=2.0.0 ³ E=Electronic
³ ³ ³ distribution
³ ³ ³
WSC=Scan (Win)³ B = beta test ³ 201=2.0.1 ³ I=Installable
³ ³ ³ version
³ ³ ³
OSC=Scan (OS/2³ G = gamma test ³ 210=2.1.0 ³ R=Retail
³ ³ ³
³ ³ ³
NSH=NETShield ³ R = release ³and so forth ³ and so forth
³ candidate ³ . ³ .
³ ³ . ³ .
³ ³ . ³ .
VSH=VShield ³ - = production ³ ³
³ release ³ ³



Examples:

Listed below are some sample filenames with an explanation of their
meaning:

SCNA200E.ZIP VirusScan for DOS Alpha-Test version 2.0.0 electronically-
distributed version.

OSCB201I.ZIP VirusScan for OS/2 Beta-Test version 2.0.1 with Install
version.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
