The absolute worse thing about virus scanners is their privacy.  Almost all of them send every single link you click on to their servers. Many also send personal informati on as well at the same time.  They do this at a low level on the operating system and have full access to encrypted and VPN tunnels.  They then sell this informati on to other services including governmen ts.

The smoke got out of my notebook so I replaced it. The old one was reasonabl y up to date but I don't know which version I was running. I tried to down load Gearotic again and Microsoft defender throws a hissy fit about a trojan and deletes the file. I found a backup of an old file, Gearotic throws a tantrum about an expired file and Microsoft deletes it.
I found a very old I5 with Gearotic on it and same result. I am not comfortab le turning off any virus protectio n and actually I am not sure how to do that. Any step by step suggestio ns?

Hi:

 Yes, if on Win10, please use the msi installer at www.gearo tic.com in the downloads tab. Youll find it
doesnt trigger a Virus warning and just notifies you the program is from a non-trusted source. (You have to pay
to be trusted.. Smiley )

Thx

That works and now I have gearotic running. I had msi and iso mixed up in my head. No use having a CD image I thought.

Hi Steve:

 Yes,the msi installer is much easier to use in Win10 and doesnt give virus warnings usually, just
a warning that Im not a trusted microsoft supplier.

  Many of you download the install from Bobs backup website which didnt have the MSI file
as a selection, it was available only from my original gearotic. com download site. Bob is adding that to
his website or may have added it already.

  The problem in the end turned out to be my fault on two points. I had a bad link on my Win10
machine and was testing an old version on every install. So I wasn't testing what I thought
 I was testing. Ironicall y, the true issue that stopped Vexx from running was a 8-bar linkage module
I had not released and was developin g slowly in the backgroun d. Its optimiser, a package for
solving nonlinear algebra functions was compiled under a dynamic linking and needed runtimes.
Vexx actually doesn't need any normally as it is staticall y linked to its run-time. Turns out Win10
hates the run-times and wont load them properly. Ill have to solve that issue if I manage to
make the multi-bar linkage routines run as I want them to.

 Anyway, all seems stable and Ill now finish up the released modules and re-upload a new Vexx.
Sorry for all the trouble and thanks to those that helped me find the error.

Thx

Hi All:

  I have finally updated to a new installer . Ive been using that old one since Mach3 days.
The installat ion setup files have been updated with the new builds. There should be no
more virus warnings, but I'm waiting to see how that works out.

  The installat ions will start to be modified and personali zed shortly but at the moment are
quick builds using the new installer . Let me know if you run into trouble.


Thx

Hi:

 Thx, Bob. A warning from defender that the program is from an untrusted source is fine,
there just shouldn't be any false flag virus warning anymore is the hope.
