    Virus Alert on Installation of 2022.09.02 on Windows 11

    When installing dBpoweramp Reference 2022.09.02 it comes up with message "error while installing..." and a virus threat alert. It then saves the temp installer to the desktop and the following is the virus alert created if I try to install this.

    Code:
    Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml 
    Alert level: Severe Status: 
    Active Date: 03/09/2022 08:37 
    Category: Trojan Details: This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker. Learn more 
    Affected items: file: C:\Users\Andrew\Desktop\gl D7.tmp-d BDolnstallActions6h.exe
    Is there a problem with the installer?
    This looks like a significant warning so I'm not happy simply overriding it.

    Seems like it is to do with the installation of the new Windows 11 context menus, as the program seems to install OK.

    NOTE in case it makes a difference, this is on Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (Insider Release Preview, build 22621.457)

    I have the same issue with 2022.09.02 that I have just downloaded after my trial version expired and I paid for a licence. Windows 11 Home Build 22000 and I also have the message 'Update to R2022-08-09' on the Control Centre too.

    Which security software is in use? My guess that it is a case of a false positive alert.

    A false positive, this part of the program automatically sets the order number. The code is only 30 lines long which does very simple stuff. I guess that such a small program is easily confused with other small programs. We shall make it larger (by adding some image manipulation libraries to it).
