MsgBoxI just tried compiling this with a v1.0.47.04 AutoHotkeySC.bin.
I had to use 7-zip to extract the bin file from the installer, since I didn't have the old zip version.
Error: Unable to create the compiled archive.
Scripts compiled with v1.0.45.04 are not detected as viruses, at least for me. I guess only v1.0.47.04 matched the virus signature. Perhaps someone wrote a virus with this version of AutoHotkey and it was reported to AVG.
I'm curious about why "Autoit" is in the name, given that I used the same version of Ahk2Exe and different versions of AutoHotkeySC.bin...
I've sent a sample (MsgBox.exe) to AVG.
Edit: btw, the description for Ask for Help is
Ask questions and (hopefully) get answers.
That aside, anti-virus false positives prevent users from running the scripts. It is a problem that needs a solution, and it relates directly to AutoHotkey. I strongly suggest that this thread belongs in Ask for Help.
Ask for help with scripting
[Mod edit: yes I think so too; I guess another moderator thought there was a conflict of interests earlier on in this discussion]
