Application seen as virus RRS feed

  • Question

  • My application doesn't start if Avast is turned on. I tried to scan it and I get "No threat found". I sent the application to a friend, he uses Kaspersky and it automatically deleted my app. Why is my app seen as a virus? What can I do.? I'm beginner.

  • Hi Thril3r,

    This forum is discuss Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    Please sign your code first with following steps which can let our project be recognized by system.

    1. Right-click your project in Visual Studio.
    2. Select "Properties" option to open the properties window.
    3. In "Signing" tab to sign your project with a Certificate.

    On the other hand, it also based on Avast. You may need to contact the Avast company and send your code to them to make sure your code is not virus.

    There are any other communities who has the same problem, please refer to following thread.


    Best Regards,
