Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I downloaded it from an official route, scirra.com.
I don't believe it's really a virus but it says it's Win32/heri. shaircast2013-11-05 12:50:41

Do you mean r129 or r149?

Not much we can do about it either way, it's a false positive. I've got AVG installed on my dev machine and it didn't seem to complain, though.

Remove AVG, it is bloatware. Norton anti-virus should also be removed if you have it.Fimbul2013-11-05 12:51:12

Oh, mistyped. Sorry.
I have used 'AVG free' for a year with C2 but didn't find this kind of problem.
Now AVG automatically blocked access to Construct2.exe. How nice.
Anyway, thanks for the info.

Use the site virustotal.com and check it...

Virustotal can check the file under many anti virus softwares...
