    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.
