Absolutely incorrect question and lack of logic.
There is NO evidence that the problem is in the installer itself
In fact, the problem is that a lot of fake antiviruses, which label everything they do not like the Black Tag
and MANY files in game folder can wrongfully be marked as unsafe
The problem is, currently:
Detection ratio: 3/72
Detection ratio: 3/71
patchers/ploader can be fixed by Edo
Detection ratio: 5/72
/??? use old version (0 false positives, but some bugs) or turn to install.mpq (will help or not?)
Detection ratio: 2/72
WarVideo.EXE (new, no flicker)
Detection ratio: 2/71
/NOT ok? probably separate download for replay programs
but separate downloads for every little stuff, until we have real configurator, is very uncomfortable and against overall concept
Warcraft II Config.exe
Detection ratio: 4/72
/NOT ok, newby users may need it
By the way, last one is a good example is that the "new" software does not solve the problem of stupid antiviruses
PS: What about nix users, with XP VM?
