    Desktop icon command -c p2p -p :What does it mean?


    Hi I have installed a program on Windows 8 called Aspect Property Manager (APM).

    The desktop icon for APM includes some code with the path to the executable file, APM.exe

    " C:\PropMan\Apm.exe -c p2p -p C:Propman\Data"

    I think the -c p2p -p is pointing the Apm.exe to use files in the C:\Propman\Data folder.

    Can anybody here tell me what type of code "-c p2p -p" is, and exactly what specific function this line of code performs.

    Many thanks,
    Tim

    Peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing allows users to share files online through an informal network of computers running the same software.
    Is this your case.

    Be aware that there are four variants of APM.exe. It can be Safe or a Threat.
    It is recommended to run a full scan using your AV program as well as Malwarebytes Free.

    Thanks for your response. Can you tell me what the -c & -p commands do?
