False positive virus? was created by Toneriko
First off I'd just like to congratulate you on a successful release - I'm really looking forward to try it out!

During the last 25% of the install the final pack file verifies ok however at around 74% the install stops due to a fatal error. Eset SmartSecurity (latest version & definitions) is detecting that wcsaga_sse2.exe_tm contains the NewHeur_PE virus...

Do you know if this is a false positive? I downloaded via the torrent provided on wcsaga.com.

Many thanks

Ashe

Check the provided checksum. if that one is valid, you're safe. Otherwise, to make sure use one of the mirrors instead of torrent.

Yes, it is a known issue. ESET does detect our EXE as false positive. We should probably contact them sooner or later.

Thank you both for the quick replies - I'd have thought you'd be out celebrating by now! :)

FYI: the md5 checksums matched (phew!) and I've submitted the file to Eset with a note that this is more than likely a false positive.

Thanks for the help, I'm re-installing as we speak and I am looking forward to enjoying all your efforts?

Can someone post the checksum here? I cannot find it anywhere. . .

I could post the MD5 sum if you want, but basically any iteration of ESEI software will detect wcsaga.exe as a potential threat.

Please, please post the MD5 checksum. I cannot locate it and want to verify my download.

I was able to google for the checksum and found 39c3cad2f35ecb2c10025cb66ca401ea in a search result.

Is this the correct checksum?

Is this checksum posted somewhere on your website, and I'm just too dense to find it?

Yep. That's the md5 checksum for the darkest-dawn-setup.zip.
