I found why it works for you and not for me. Earlier I compiled sample
clients by just running Makefile.def. Now I compiled by running
configure first, and AvpDaemonClient from Sample1 started to find
viruses. It has one problem though - it sends files for scanning one by
one (I see it from /var/log/kavscan.rpt), while other clients just send
directory. But I think we can live with that for now.

But the same problem remains - instead of VirusWarning.txt there is
still eicar.co attached. Is it a known problem and is it fixed in newest
