armand, it's not "my" ERA, it's official. You aren't going to find any better. I don't know why it is named 2.461.
As for antiviruses, ERA is a mod and a modding platform, meaning it changes the game code while the game is running to implement its functionality. Of course it would be considered suspicious, as viruses do the same. As you may see from your results, the antivirus declares ERA components or various tools a virus based on unreliable heuristic indications. Antiviruses aren't perfect, armand, sometimes they need to be overruled by common sense.

gamecreator, perhaps you are right.

It seems that only the self-extractor issue was caught by heuristics.

If "your" version is the official 2.46 then it doesn't make sense to be different than Valery's 2.46 version (if his is also the official). Yet, they are binary different.

As for the ERA being a modding platform - can't we say the same thing about WoG 3.58f?
Yet, I've never come across virus thread while scanning WoG. This might be due to the .wog files though.

Anyway, thank you both for the help guys, I'll try once more without heuristics to see if that helps.

Valery's version is older.

There were such threads, haven't seen any recently though. Perhaps WoG is so old and widespread that antivirus developers added it to exceptions. Also WoG is mostly internal: it is contained within the exe file itself. ERA is mostly external.

I don't think there are any differences between, I hold the version Bersy put on his site too. I don't recall him having updated 2.46, it was planned to be re-released with erm help additional codes but it didn't. Probably differences from packing process?

No, there is a difference. era.dll is dated later (18.07.13) and you can see the changes in source code, though I'm not sure what they mean. Something to do with ERA's file system. You must have downloaded it before the change and then put what you had on the side instead of redownloading.

The differences are in era.dll, eramap.dll and small changes in some sources - mainly in version string (gamecreator's copy is version 2.461) but also in some functions regarding canonical names.

FYI I re-scanned for viruses with heuristic detection turned off and again detected:
Trojan.Gen.2 in defka.exe and
Trojan.Gen.SMH in lodimport.exe and repman.exe

I think I'll stick to WoG 3.58f for now, thank you for all the help and suggestions.

If you do not trust, delete the two files manually. Functional ERA will not be harmed.
