F-Secure Virus found in installation file

Post by jogger »

Powershell Studio SPS17Setup_5.4.141_062317_x64.exe to SPS17Setup_5.4.142_071817_x64.exe Update:
On my german PC the "in software" update does not work.
So I have to download the actual Software from the sapien site.
During Installation I received virus warnings regarding win32.exe:

Thank you for notifying us.

We continuously scan our products on our end and this could be false positive. I highly recommend submitting the file to the antivirus vendor to confirm if it is in fact a false-positive.
