Title: Virus and Malware
Post by: Pieter Hulshoff on April 01, 2017, 09:54:30 PM
To all: It has been brought to my attention that the statically linked version I used to distribute is causing major havoc with certain anti-virus tools. I cannot be 100% sure that this is merely a false positive, so in order to remove all doubt I've updated the Download page, and replaced the statically linked versions with dynamically linked versions. This however does require you to have the correct Microsoft Visual Studio files installed, like it used to be. I'm doing my best to figure out why the statically linked version is causing problems. In the mean time, I'm also attaching the 0.8.0 - RC1 executable. The full release isn't ready yet, but you can play with it if you'd like.

With the previous release Windows Defender was reacting but now seems to be all quiet  :)
