Hi Dave;
I just got the notice that there was a new version available so I downloaded it, but I got the message >> rswclie...n-win32.exe appears malicious<<
Any idea what's up? I haven't installed it yet.

The file on the server is exactly the file I built, so it hasn't been compromised since it left my desktop computer. It *is* possible that I have a virus I don't know about on my desktop computer, and that would indeed be worrisome, but I think it's not very likely.

It's more likely that your antivirus software is detecting a false positive; this is actually fairly common. Does it give any more specific information?

No, but this is an updated version of Norton and it tends to be paranoid. Anything with a .exe it considers malicious :-)

I can't find any evidences of viruses whatsoever in this file. I'm inclined to believe it's just Norton being silly.
