    Dear Sirs,

    the latest version of AntiVir (http://www.freeav.de/) reports a possible security privacy risk (SPR/Errorsafe) in the current stellarium 0.7.1 windows installer. Accourding to their (german) forums, the problem might be usage of the freeware "Inno Setup" to create the installer, not the stellarium files within.

    Might it be possible for You to
    a) use another freeware installer instead e.g. Nullsoft NSIS (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page) or
    b) provide the windows binaries in a ZIP-file without installer?

    BTW: Stellarium is a real great experience! Thank You!

    Yours sincerey,
    Michael

      Hello again,

      short update: was a (now confirmed) false positive, as currently updated AntiVir does not report the possible security risk any more.

      Sorry for bothering You!

      Happy star-gazing,
      Michael

    Hi
    Was about to DL using chrome on win 10 and I got a security warning.

    Is it safe to proceed?

    Tnx
