Where is my Secunia?
« on: November 27, 2011, 10:41:52 PM »
I have forgotten to run Secunia for a couple months, and now I'm having trouble finding it on my computer to run.

I see it listed in my Program Files as PSI, but there is no icon in the task bar so I don't know where to go to run it.

Thanks for any help.

It's usually installed here:   C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI

Do you know how to manually locate folders using Windows 'explore'?

1) It should appear among the programs in your START menu, as "Secunia PSI".

2) As Winchester noted, the executable file "psi.exe" should appear in your
"C:\Program Files\Secunia\PSI\"   directory

Note:  I am still running an older version of PSI (1.5.x), and am using Windows XP... just in case something is different for v2.x or Vista/Win7.

I can find C:/Program files/Secunia/PSI  But when I click PSI, I only see this:

psialog
psialog.txt2
sualog

I don't see Secunia in my start list of programs unless it's buried somewhere but I have looked.

Interesting --- my Secunia\PSI directory doesn't contain those log files... in fact, I can't find them anywhere on my PC.

you can try doing a SEACH (via Windows Explorer) for psi.exe , to see if perhaps [due to a "customized" installation (???)] it's located in another directory.

If searching doesn't find anything, my suggestion at this point would be to downloand and install it again   http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/download_psi/
