    Then use an alternative packer? Or there is no other alternative, in which case fair enough...

    Oohhhh, ok. Oh didn't know SR4 had a workshop page.....got a link to that? I'm currently browsing through it and I don't see this tool(or tools) on there....

    Ohhh, ok - in that case that's fine as long as there's no transcoding! :)

    Alright then, in that case I can safely set Kaspersky to ignore that flag and or restore the quarantined file! Thanks for confirming - I take all I said about it being infected back then; though one would wonder why you haven't submitted these programs to the antivirus/malware companies so they can whitelist or for them to check themselves if it is incorrectly flagged or not...and then update their definitions database on that....surely all it takes is just upload your files to them, contact them saying something on the lines of "Hey, can you whitelist or confirm my programs are virus/malware free so they are ignored, please?" And they will reply with a "Certainly" and then sometime passes by and all your programs that once was picked up as false positives no longer are anymore and all shows clean across the board! :confused::po_O:)

    You put way too much trust in the antivirus programs. They are far from infallible. They are a tool. Nothing more.
    While it's certainly prudent to be cautious, you can't expect every open-source programmer to submit every version of their software to every antivirus company. It's simply impractical. And we have better things to do with our time. Minimaul provides his source code which you can view yourself. That's the most you should expect from free software. If you expect more, find a paid alternative.

    You've done the correct thing by investigating the source of the software. Minimaul has been endorsed by Volition, so that's a rock solid endorsement. That's actually way more than you will get from the modding tools for most games, which are frequently not even open source. In addition, he's the creator of this forum which has been around for many years. If his code had malware, it certainly wouldn't have lasted this long. I think it's safe to say that every modder on this forum has used his tools, including myself. We're very lucky to have a skilled programmer like Minimaul spending many, many hours of his personal, unpaid time to provide the modding community with these free tools. He's done the right thing by making them open-sourced. If that's not enough, I would say your expectations are unrealistic.

    Ok fair enough - that's understandable - I have submitted the recent version 1.31 to Kaspersky so they can update their definitions on it for you....;) And now should no longer be flagged.
