Hello,

I just had the exe removed from my AVG. It looks that a virus or something similar is inside the installer.

Please contact the author and maybe avoid further downloads until fixed

No need to worry, you can rest assured that It's simply a false positive detection by the anti-virus software. My Avast anti-virus, is doing exactly the same. For some reason the scanners are unhappy with the .exe installer file that is provided in the scenery folder. I've noticed this happening quite frequently with Avast since they updated the software a couple of months ago. The software is now overly sensitive, with many files that are completely harmless! I suspect exactly the same problematic issue with AVG.

Anyway hope that reassures you. You simply need to disable your live AVG scanning for 10 minutes or so, to happily complete the installation. The Sardinia scenery very good, IMHO well worth adding to your sim. All the best.
