    McAfee now thinks all MMF 2.5 apps are viruses

    And it deletes them without notice. It doesn't even bother to quarantine them. You can except out the a particular file in the exceptions from the real-time scanner. But if you change the file, McAfee automatically removes it from the exclusion list. I'm beginning to hate McAfee. I think I'm going to ditch them. But this is an issue that really ought to be fixed.

    At first it was just the file object that McAfee hated. But now it doesn't seem to matter. Even a blank exe that does nothing will get scrubbed. If it was made by an earlier version of Fusion, McAfee doesn't seem to have a problem with it. Maybe even an earlier build but I don't know. It seems like anything I've built with 2.5 is now subject to being scrubbed.

    This seems to go in waves of things getting triggered by virus vendors. Im just another user. Here's a link with info on how you can submit your apps you make to McAfee. https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/inde...ent&id=KB85567

    Might help Clickteam and other users if you include info on what build you are using. current release or the latest beta release. Good luck with it.

    I'm using the current release, not a beta. I've tried submitting stuff to McAfee before, and it didn't seem to matter. I fixed things for awhile by excluding the file object from McAfee's real time scanner. But now McAfee wants to find all Fusion 2.5 apps to be viruses. Even a BLANK APP that does nothing.

    I'm through with McAfee. I officially ditched them today and installed a different antivirus suite offered by my ISP (apparently I was just grandfathered in on the McAfee because I got it when my ISP was offering that).

    Have you code signed your applications for distribution?

    How do I do that?

    (I think, someday I might sell an app I built. But so far, the only one using my apps is me. I've created some things I've found useful, both at work and for personal use.)

    They will never stop apparently
    Also signing apps certificate is very pricey

    Just know as long as it's win32 application it will trigger atleast one MFA

    I remember I once made an empty win32 app with C++ and winAPI
    it triggered 3 AVs....

    It's just hopeless situation
