They have more than 1 version number. It is always possible that 1.420 is
1.99, I really can't remember any more. The 1.99 version has a double-dash
at the beginning of all the command-line arguments (e.g. "--log") whereas
earlier ones have only a single dash. That was the only reliable way I
found of working out which version I had.

If you run "nod32 --help" or "nod32 -h" or something like that, it should
print the usage for you.

1.99 has some serious scanning problems fixed, I would have to do a serious
mail archive search to find more details though.
