Hi all,


I recently created my first game for PC. However, whenever I try to send it to somebody, I get warned that it is a virus. The game definitely isn't a virus, and this warning prevents anybody from downloading it. I believe it is something to do with a certificate not being signed, however, I am not very tech savvy so I am not sure on this.


I cannot afford to hire an expert, so any help would be HUGELY appreciated




Thanks all.

What anti-virus/security software is detecting program as a threat? If you have that information, you can submit it the file to the vendor's lab so they can analyze it and take corrective action if confirmed as a false positive.

For submission of file samples or possible false positives to a specific anti-virus vendor, please see:

If you can submit it to www.virustotal.com and post the link here, I'll have a look.
