It looks like no matter what I do with the Community CPS installer, it now gets falsely reported as containing a virus 🙁
As there does not seem to be a solution to the false positives, I thought I may as well reinstate the OpenGD77 comm port driver as part of the CPS installer, as removing it no longer seems to prevent the false positive warning.
I understand that no one wants to install anything which their antivirus detects as a virus, so I’ve put the same files in as a zip
Except, you’ll need to manually run the comm port driver and copy the CPS to a suitable location.
For those interested in the whole false positives problem, its well documented
And this is a great article about how its virtually impossible to get rid of false positives from an installer
I’m using an installer maker called InnoSetup, but the problem seems to apply to all installers e.g.
So although I could try changing installers, I’m not sure it would be worth the effort.
Possibly the only solution is to digitally sign the installer, however this is extremely costly, costing hundreds of dollars per year, and I simply don’t have those sort of financial resources to spend on stuff I give away for free.
