Did you try running the command like this: 

    ./mbrscan

Also, if that doesn't work, make sure the files have the executable bit set.

chmod +x *

Nope.

Steven,

I believe 'mbrscan' needs an argument, otherwise it'll just go straight back to a prompt with no output (which indicates that it did what was requested, i.e. nothing).

Try:

./mbrscan [path to a .vmdk file]

Re: VSC Installed,now trying to use MBRscan and Align

I am getting same error. I uploaded the folder called

 

and extracted the utilities on my datastore

 

keep getting this error
