BVE DOWNLOAD BLOCKED

Post by Terrence1946 on Fri Apr 27, 2018 4:47 am

Very curious recent development: hitherto I've had no problem downloading the latest 'Open BVE' file and installing it.  Now my anti-virus programme has blocked the download (see screenshot below).  Of course, I could disable the anti-virus programme but maybe there is a problem with this download which I should take seriously.  Any thoughts?

Sadly, that happens regularily with virtually every update... It's a conceptual weakness of the heuristics behind AV software. You'll have to wait for Chris to kick the software vendors in their lower back again.

Yeah, there's not a lot I can do other than send irritated emails each time....

The threat name it's detecting is IDP-Generic, which is stupid heuristics Sad

Only detected by three of the smaller free AV vendors (Free AV tends to be more agressive), and if you give it a few days it'll unblock itself.
