Hi, I downloaded the updated, it ran through the install ok, but at the end I had a message to say close all open instances of Evo, when I did that the install setup itself closed without updating.

Hi all,

this is a known issue with Norton/Symantec anti virus and the DIALux evo setup, it happened with evo 4.1 and 5.0. Usually it takes some time until Symantec updates the virus signatures (I guess they add the special hash value of the setup to a kind of whitelist). Unfortunately we have no chance to control how anti virus products try to detect malware. I think it is a kind of heuristic trying to detect possible dangerous code (add/modify registry settings, installing files, modify access rights, install services, send data to a web server, ...).
We have some issues with another anti virus false positives too. In fact it detects an empty setup file as potential malware, we do not even need to add files to be installed :roll:

It is a false positive, you can add the setup (or the folder) to the exceptions that should not be scanned. After the installation you can safely remove the exception.
Just make sure to download the setup from our web site. We have signed the setup so you can be sure the software is from DIAL and not altered after we signed it (properties->digital signature).

Please feel free to report the false positive to Symantec, they are the only one who can solve this: https://submit.symantec.com/false_positive/

Got this answer from Symantec:

The updated detection will be distributed in the next set of virus definitions, available via LiveUpdate or from our website at http://securityresponse.symantec.com/av ... nload.html

Please note that whitelisting can take up to 24 hours to take effect.

Hi,

Thank you very much for the feedback. I did not even know there is a "Whitelisting program". I think we will add this to our release process in the future to avoid these problems.

Thanks again for the information. :D
