This is a HUGE bug! And a quick Google check will show it has been a problem for a very,very,very long time. In fact,one of the top Google results is from Feb 19,2011. Today is Feb 18,2018. Hehehe! Tomorrow will be the 7th year anniversary of this bug. Funny,but sad-the guy from 7 years ago decide not to use it.
It looks like most the antivirus programs are flagging the installer as a virus. Now,I am a bit more experienced than your average user (I was building/programming/using computers before MS-DOS was around) and I am 99.999999% sure there is not a virus in cdburnerxp,despite what many antivirus programs report.
And that is where the real BUG is! Who is a casual computer user going to believe? A guy on the internet or their antivirus program? You have got to be losing a lot of would-be users because of this! And that is a shame since a CD/DVD burner is incomplete without cdburnerxp,in my opinion and the majority of reviewers. It is one of those rare programs that is both extremely useful and easy to use.
The sad part is there is such an easy fix!
Take out installcore-even if there is a monetary reason to use it. Make the installer without installcore the default installer. The antiviris programs will be happ,and more importantly,your casual computer users will not freak out and look elsewhere.
FOR ANYONE WITH A VIRUS SCANNER THAT FLAGS IT AS A VIRUS,DO THIS:
1) Goto the "More download options" page-which takes you here:
2) Look for "Default Installer (without installcore)"
3) choose the 32bit or 64bit version,download that and click to install. Chances are your antivirus will see it as a clean file and will not give you a warning (my Norton AntiVirus declares it clean).
-the installer filename you want as of Feb 18,2018 is " cdbxp_setup_126.96.36.19995_x64_minimal.exe "
that has the version number,64bit....the KEY is it must have the word "minimal" in it.
If you are reading this at a date other than Feb 18,2018, the numbers may be different because the version you are downloading may be different.
I hope this helped!
