Not sure what you are trying to do here.  I assume this is the home product?

C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\mcods.exe would be correct to tell software what part of VirusScan will be used to scan for malware, however that other code I have no idea about as the home product cannot be run using any kind of Command.

Edit:  I looked back and realized that this question has been asked in the past and the answer is to enter C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\mcods.exe & ignore that second script line.

All you need to do is tell it to use the mcods .exe.  It can't be told to physically start scanning however.
