False positives as usual. It happens to even the best AV products.

Any idea what keeps causing these false positives? It does seem rather usual to me that this keeps being an issue.

Most likely because CFSM is being distributed/downloaded as an executable file rather than an archive.  Most AV tries to protect you from downloading executables.  Have a look here for how to AV whitelist CFSM and CF site.

Thanks for feedback.  @Unleashed2k will update the CF permalinks to the beta and release versions of CFSM  soon so you will be able to download through those again.

your getting my hopes up...  i tried downloading the .rar file without changing any of my av program, and it loads and saves.  wonderful.  i tried installing and the program starts up like normal, starts checking my existing dlc files, then stops with a popup box that has   paint   in the top left corner and the text:  

 

C:\.......\CFSM\debug.log

paint cannot read this file

this is not a valid bitmap file, or its format is not currently supported.

 

this also shows a paint icon on the task bar for the popup window

 

any suggestions??  i haven't seen this one before.  i tried deleting the file, but the message keeps coming back and once i red x or OK the box, it closes out cfsm.

 

p.s. i did deactivate my av and reran the cfsm, but no change

Your old song.Info.xml file probably contains some paths that are no longer compatible with the new version of CFSM. 

 

Please download the latest version of CFSM which will increment SongDataListCurrentVersion so that your song.Info.xml file is properly regenerated.  http://appdev.cfmana...//CFSMSetup.rar  This should fix the issue.  Please let me know if does.

i downloaded the 1.3.3.2 (whichever you had listed above).  i did not deactivate my av, and everything came in fabulous.  installed cfsm, it starts going through my dlc, then hangs and gives me the "paint" message again.  when it does this i cannot get back into cfsm to check the log, so i am stuck with just closing the error window which then shuts cfsm completely.  i did go into the program manager and uninstall the existing cfsm, then installed the new one.  this was when it started going through the dlc instead of throwing up the message right away.  but deleting the existing did not seem to correct it completely.   i'm getting anxious as it looks like this is getting closer and closer to being ready to run, just if we can find the hangups on this one.   i'm open to suggestions

 

btw, thanks for all your time and help on this.  really do love your work
