Whats up with the x64 installer?

Hello,

it only gives a x86 installer? No x64 installer, only a *.zip file?


regards

Takashi used InnoSetup 6 to create the x64 Setup. Unfortunately Mcafee and SecureAge detect the setup as malware. :roll:

He reported it as False Positives but without luck. He will maybe release a x64 Setup with InnoSetup 5 later.

Just post the installer to an alternate website or to a Torrent, and let McAfee live in their fantasy. The important part is to publish the SHA5 on WinMerge website so that folks can validate the binary when they download it from other places or from BitTorrent. And of course to replace AV software which doesn't behave, with software that does! Once you publish the binary, other people will become upset with McAffee and will report the problem too: then it's won't be your problem any more.
