VueMinder Server Download Threat

Post by Tanya » Sun Jul 10, 2011 5:50 pm

I am trying to download the VM Server and my AVG comes up with message that it has a virus threat. Should I continue to download it?
Also, does VM Server work with 8.0.1? I cannot afford to upgrade it.
Thanks for your help.

Hi Tanya, you can safely ignore the AVG message.

The VueMinder Server setup is just a wrapper of the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 installation, including a VueMinder database. The message you're seeing is a false positive because VueMinder Server is relatively new and some antivirus programs assume all "unknown" executable files are threats until they have been "blessed" by the antivirus software developer, which could take months or years. I could go on a long tirade against antivirus software, but I'll just leave it there...

In any case, you'll need VueMinder Calendar 8.2.0 or later in order to share calendars through VueMinder Server.
