v6.00 has fewer anti-virus false-positives!

Post by BarryG »

So I downloaded the new v6.00 Alpha 2 (with the new C backend) and tested my app with it, and it compiles my 45000-line app without a single hiccup or change needed to my code; AND I'm happy to report that it has REDUCED the number of anti-virus false-positives immensely! Check it out:

PureBasic v5.73 LTS made a 4.46 MB exe -> https://i.imgur.com/BX211CC.png (19 false-positives).
PureBasic v6.00 Alpha 2 made a 5.76 MB exe -> https://i.imgur.com/m4RugKU.png (4 false-positives).

I can live with the extra exe size due to the AV issue being pretty much resolved. This is awesome! Thanks, Fred and team!

Hi BarryG,

Did you compile it using the ASM compiler or the C compiler in Alpha 2?

Just the default compiler setting of Alpha 2. I installed it to its own folder and ran it from there. "Use Compiler" was NOT ticked in the Compiler Options of my app.

Oh so 64bit ASM. That's really good news I hope then when compiled with the C compiler we will end up with none.

That's what I'm hoping for, too. My app doesn't compile with the C compiler yet (bug report done).
