*** Moved from main support forum to FSUIPC7 / MSFS support sub-forum ***

Hello,

This morning my anti-virus detects a trojan on yesterday update 7.4.11

X:\telechargement\Install_FSUIPC7.04.11\Install_FSUIPC7\Install_FSUIPC7.exe=>(NSIS o)=>RegistrationChecker.exe Trojan.Generic.35540783

Searching in the web, I didn't find anything related to this trojan, so I asked for Bitdefender support to check it to see if it is maybe a positive false. (I think so)

Regards,

Thierry

It will be a false positive. The RefistrationChecker.exe was recompiled with the latest VisualStudio update for this release, no other changes. I do not understand why this is now being flagged by BitDefender. Thanks for reporting this.

P.S. You posted in the main support forum - please use the specific FSUIPC7 sub-forum for all issues with FSUIPC7. I will move your post.

Oups John, sorry for the wrong forum.

I will inform you about Bit Defender support answer.

I also sent them the link to download the 7.4.11 version to check by themselves.

I´m just wondering how long take now the simulator to start. It´s about 10 minutes to get the main menu. Is there any workaround to do?

The log file attached stops after 3 seconds and was attached when FSUIPC7 was still running - MSFS was detected but FSUIPC7 hadn't even tried to connect yet.

Please see this post: 

 

And please hijack unrelated posts - this post is about virus protection blocking the installer. There are several posts on start-up issues but not this one - and this one is badly named - I will update.

John

Later: sorry, look like you have already adjusted that. Please create a new  post and attach a fill log, where you get to the main menu, wait a short time and then exit FSUIPC. FSUIPC should not affect the start-up time much though. Try disabling FSUIPC7 (just rename the FSUIPC7.exe) and see what start-up times you get then.
