Newcomer Question About Download
« on: December 25, 2014, 05:40:14 AM »
Hello All,

As this is an established community I'm sure this is more of a user-side issue, but my anti-virus program automatically flags and removes all files when I download them from the server (v3.15). Malwarebytes also doesn't fancy the program. Can someone enlighten me as to why this may be? I'd love to install and play but I have a good relationship with my anti-virus and malware programs.

Cheers :-[

Absolutely all the files? Problem should be with wppatch.exe only, maybe war2nocdloader.exe also.
These files have anti-debug protection, so that can cause false positives with some antivirus software.
I know about norton false positive against wppatch.exe.

Let me know you have more problems or just attach the picture with your problem to the forum message.

P.S: of course, there wasn't any malware code inside the any of the combat application.

I've been playing for years with the war2 combat version and never had any issues.  The only problem I had is that my credit card has been fraudulently used 18x but I think it has nothing to do with war2combat.  JK  No probs and welcome to war2!

I think these temporary problems have reason of antivirus updates. Just wait, and your antivirus can show false positive. Wait some more, and that false positive will gone. Or return back.

There's nothing changed in combat for years.

Cant always follow antivirus software to the letter, gotta wise up and identify exceptions. Antivirus are a tool to use, not a computer manual.

p.s, Even google chrome detects 3.15 as harmful and requires users override to download it

If im not mistaken and if I recall correctly the 3.10 version downloads just fine.

Do you mean this:

Please, post SS for each problem you have, that will make it easier to understand and fix it.

no wtf

First, that picture you posted is from internet explorer, not chrome, so you're already in the wrong direction.

I am talking about GOGGLE CHROME, which is the browser 90% of the people use.

When you start the download with goggle chrome, the download process starts and you actually see the progress as it downloads.
However when you reach to 100%. The download button of war2combat turns red and displays a message saying the file is pottentially unsafe and the default option to select is to reject the download, you have to click the dropdownmenu and select Ignore warning and download. its pretty discouraging message when your fav browser pops up with this and chrome itself rarely detects other files as risk.

Cant add a screenshot cuz I already added the exception to chrome. But i think I gave a good enough explanation of the issue.



This has been thoroughly discussed in the old occult forums many times and there are many threads about it, some including screenshots
If you have the backup go do a search there.
